endodontics

_ the root canal treatment

Endodontics is the branch of dentistry concerning dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of a tooth. “Endo” is the Greek word for “inside” and “odont” is Greek for “tooth.” Endodontic treatment, or root canal treatment, treats the soft pulp tissue inside the tooth that is diseased or has been traumatized. By saving your tooth, an endodontist can help you keep your smile natural, so you can keep eating your favorite foods and maintain your overall health. Nothing looks, feels or functions like your natural teeth!
