Endodontics is a branch of general dentistry focused on dental pulp and periarticular tissue. The most common endodontic treatment is a root canal. The insides of your teeth are comprised of a soft pulp made up of blood vessels and nerves that help your teeth develop and grow. Root canal treatment is the process of removing pulp that has become injured or infected, cleaning the cavity and then filling and sealing it. At this point, your tooth will be prepared for a filling or a crown. Root canal treatment can save a tooth that would otherwise require extraction, and once a filling or crown is fitted onto your tooth, it will appear and function like a normal tooth.
