Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the complex structures found inside teeth. The Greek word “Endodon” literally means “inside your tooth,” and relates to pulp tissues nerves arterioles." Endotoinists receive additional dental training after completing school in order to enable them perform both complicated procedures like root canal therapy as well simple tasks such has filling cavities or removing extractions if necessary .
A tooth is only considered diseased if there are signs of dental decay. Endodontists will remove the affected tissues and save your natural teeth in most cases, restoring them to health with a crown restoration!

Reasons for endodontic treatment
Root canal treatment is performed to save teeth. Most dentists agree that there's no substitute for healthy, natural teeth Root canals are an important part of dental care because they allow you some relief from pain and discomfort when necessary although not all restorations will work with them due to their complexity Endodontic deals specifically with this issue by working on exterior parts of the tooth.
Here are some of the main causes of inner tooth damage:
What does an endodontic procedure invlove?
Root canal therapy usually takes between one and three visits to complete. Complete X-rays will be taken before the treatment begins, which can include an examination of your teeth's condition in detail for more accurate results on how long you'll need or if any other procedures are needed at all during this process.
A local anesthetic will be administered and a dental dam placed to ensure that the surgical area remains free from saliva during treatment. A small opening in the surface of one's tooth will then be created, which pulp can later come out through if necessary.
The patient will first have their teeth cleaned and prepared for the restoration procedure. Gutta-percha is then applied to seal off any remaining root canals, followed by cementing on top of this temporary filling which may be necessary due to lack of function before surgery or other reasons. At last but not least - if all has gone well during treatment sessions so far-, they are booked in for a final crown placement.
