Endodontics deals with pulp and nerve of the teeth. Endodontic therapy’s main goal is to save teeth from extraction. The most common therapy is root canal treatment.
A root canal therapy is a treatment done when the pulp and nerve of the tooth is infected or inflamed from a deep decay or fracture. A reasonable choice for people is to save one’s own tooth if faced with this situation. This is done by accessing the infected or inflamed tissue inside the tooth. Then the damaged pulp is removed and the canal system is disinfected, we can achieve a control over the inflammatory process and remove the cause of the discomfort. Once the inside of the tooth is cleaned and shaped, it is filled and sealed from the oral cavity. After the healing process has started and the main symptoms associated with the inflammation and infection has subsided, it is recommended to cap the tooth in question to avoid further loss of the tooth’s structural integrity.
