Endodontics deals with the root of your teeth. If you have a diseased or cracked tooth, an endodontist will be in charge of your case.
Endodontists work on tooth pulp using root canal therapy. Endodontics is needed when the nerves of the teeth are affected by decay or infection. A root canal saves the tooth by removing the pulp, nerves, bacteria, and any decay within. The space is then filled with medicated dental materials, restoring the tooth to its full function.
