If you have ever suffered any dental damage in the past, you probably understand how important it is to have your teeth checked out immediately. This is a problem because bacteria can then enter a tooth and cause severe dental damage in the form of infections, pulp death, and tooth loss. A specialized branch of dentistry that is designed to care for the pulp of a tooth is endodontics. Not allowed do endodontists help care for the pulp of a tooth, but they are also trained to treat and repair tissues within the root of a tooth as well.
If you are in need of endodontic treatment, it usually means that the pulp of your tooth has been damaged. Fortunately, endodontists have additional training to allow them to perform endodontic surgeries to save damaged and broken teeth. In fact, endodontists have received an additional 2-3 years of advanced medical training to allow them to perform therapies and treatments to save teeth. By using procedures such as root canals, it may be possible to remove the damaged pulp and save a tooth for many years to come without having to replace it with a tooth prosthetic.
