Endodontics is the branch of dentistry dealing with saving badly damaged or infected teeth through different procedures which involve the pulp (nerve) and root of teeth. The treatment is commonly known as a root canal treatment. It involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it, and then filling and sealing it.
Cracked teeth, deep cavities and trauma are the most common causes. Endodontics comes from the Greek "endo" meaning inside and the word "odont" meaning tooth.
High tech rotary instruments are used for modern day root canal treatments, that increase the success rate and ensure you can keep your treated tooth for as long as possible.
