Endodontics

The dental specialty concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp.

A root treatment means that the dentist removes the source of the damage, opening and cleaning the tooth from bacteria to then fill the root canal.

The most common reason for root canals is that the tooth’s pulp has been infected by a deep caries attack, which is to say, a hole in the tooth. It can also be necessary due to a deep reparation, crack in the tooth or trauma. The pulp can be irritated and damaged leading to bacteria forming in the pulp and a bacterial infection of the tooth’s root canal.

If you are troubled by a pulsating pain and soreness it can be a sign of a damaged pulp. Although these symptoms are not always visible.

A root canal necessitates at least two dentist appointments. You can watch a video explanation below:
