Endodontics covers a range of areas within the field of dentistry, primarily focused on diagnosing and treating issues related to the innermost portion of the tooth. These areas include:

  • Root Canal Therapy 

    This is the most well-known aspect of endodontics. It involves treating infections, inflammation, or damage within the dental pulp (the inner part of the tooth) by carefully removing the affected tissue, cleaning and disinfecting the area, and sealing it to prevent further infection.

  • Endodontic Retreatment

    In cases where a previously treated tooth develops new issues, endodontic retreatment is performed. It involves reopening the tooth, cleaning out the affected area, and resealing it to promote healing.

  • Apicoectomy

    This surgical procedure is used when infection or inflammation persists after root canal treatment. It involves removing the tip of the tooth’s root and sealing the end to prevent further infection.

  • Treatment of Dental Trauma 

    Endodontists also handle cases of dental trauma, such as injuries to the teeth caused by accidents or impact, which can result in pulp damage or other internal problems.

  • Diagnosis and Consultation

    Endodontists use various diagnostic tools, such as digital imaging and clinical examinations, to identify the source of tooth pain and determine the appropriate course of treatment.

  • Pain Management

    Endodontics addresses toothaches and discomfort caused by pulp inflammation or infection, providing relief and restoring dental health.

  • Preserving Natural Teeth

    By effectively treating internal dental issues, endodontics helps save natural teeth from extraction, promoting long-term oral health and preserving smiles.

Endodontics plays a crucial role in maintaining oral health, alleviating pain, and preserving natural teeth through its various specialized treatments and procedures.
