What is Endodontics

Endodontics is the study of dental pulp. This is most prevalent in the dental office in the form of root canals. The main purpose of Endodontics is the removal of diseased pulp. This involves cleaning, disinfecting, and filling of the canal system. Endodontics will preserve the tooth and keep it structurally stable despite the damage done to the canal system. Root canals can also remove chronic pain associated with a meriade of dental conditions and is, in the majority of cases, preferred over the extraction of the tooth.
