Endodontics

Root Canal Treatment- If the pulp (nerve) of the tooth becomes severely inflamed infected or dies then either the tooth must be removed or the pulp must be removed and then sealed. It is similar in concept to a cavity in which diseased tooth structure is removed and then replaced with a filling.  Endodontic treatment removes the diseased portions of the tooth inside the root and then the space is filled with an inert material. Endodontics (root canal treatment) may prevent the loss of a needed tooth.
