Different dental specialists have likely seen you, most adults have a lot of different work done in their lifetime, but an endodontist is still lesser known than other specialties. That doesn’t make them any less important, though. Endodontics is at the core of keeping your teeth healthy and functioning as they should.
Endodontists deal with the inside of your teeth, the pulp, and the root system. If the inside of your tooth is damaged or infected, it may need to be removed to prevent the damage from spreading to other teeth. The same goes for the root system of your tooth.
Root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures involving an endodontist or a dentist treating endodontic issues. Root canal therapy treats a tooth’s damaged or infected root system to save it from needing dental extraction. Another popular treatment is a cavity filling that almost every adult has. A filling is an endodontic procedure since a cavity creates a hole in a tooth’s pulp. Without the filling, the tooth continues to rot and eventually crumbles.
