What is Endodontics
Endodontic (root canal) treatment is the removal of the pulp of the tooth to either prevent or resolve a tooth abscess.
Endodontic (root canal) treatment is the removal of the pulp (the nerves and blood vessels inside the tooth) either to prevent or resolve an infection (abscess). Teeth become infected because the pulp tissue inside the tooth becomes injured or diseased. This can cause pain and swelling in the tissues surrounding the tooth. Performing root canal treatment removes the source of the infection and allows the bone and tissue around the tooth to heal. According to the American Dental Association, over 22 million root canals are done in the U.S. every year and allow many people to retain their natural teeth.
