Your natural teeth have the best appearance and feel, and with proper maintenance, your smile can last a lifetime. However, issues such as tooth decay, disease, or injury might jeopardize a person’s smile. Many teeth can be salvaged as a result of breakthroughs in dentistry and technology.
A process known as root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is one way to save teeth. Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on restoring the dental pulp after it has been damaged or diseased.
Endodontists are dentists who have received advanced training in root canal treatment. To treat you quickly and comfortably, they use cutting-edge technologies like microscopes and digital imaging to save your original teeth.
Dentin is a firm tissue that lies behind the white enamel of a healthy tooth. The Pulp is a soft tissue that lies beneath the dentin. The nerves and blood vessels of the tooth are located in the pulp. It stretches from the tooth’s crown to the roots of your teeth. Your Endodontist will remove the pulp if it becomes inflamed or infected.
A tooth that has had root canal treatment often lasts a lifetime so you keep smiling with confidence.
