Endodontics is the care of soft tissues within your teeth. All dentists have an understanding of endodontics, but not all dental practices specialize in soft tissue diagnoses and treatments.
Because the soft tissues within your teeth are difficult to access and analyze, dentists who focus on endodontics are specially trained and licensed.
When is Endodontic Care Needed
Tissue decay, inflamed pulp matter and ligaments, damaged teeth, distressed nerves, disease and infected injuries all require the specialized care of an endodontist. Often, pain and toothaches cannot be located with precision by a general practice dentist. Endodontists are specially trained to handle difficult-to-determine cases where sensitive, in-depth investigation is essential and customized treatments applied.
Get to the Source of Your Discomfort
Because your oral cavity contains a vast matrix of nerves, pain from one source can be felt in a general area including your mouth, head, neck and even ears. It’s vital to determine and treat the correct cause of pain.
Once the source of aching is identified, a process often called “root canal” is performed to access damaged tooth tissues and remove the infection and dead pulp matter. The cavity is filled with sterile bio-matter which aids the healing process and discourages the reemergence of infectious germs. Afterwards, the access tunnel is then sealed.
