20 Dec What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is the field of dentistry that covers diseases of the root canal system and traumatic injuries to the teeth. All teeth have a dental pulp which is made up of blood vessels, nerves and other tissues housed inside your tooth in the root canal system. If the dental pulp becomes injured or infected, it may need to be removed so you can continue to use your tooth without pain or disease. Occasionally an old root canal treatment performed previously can become re-infected and require re-treatment by a specialist Endodontist.
