Endodontic Treatment/Root Canal Therapy
Endodontics is the area of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the dental pulp or the soft center of the tooth which houses the nerve and blood supply. Natural teeth are meant to last a lifetime. If your tooth should die, fracture, or become critically injured or diseased, it can still be saved in some cases. This involves a procedure known as endodontic or root canal therapy. This technique has been around for many, many years, but advances in the field of endodontics have made this therapy a routine dental procedure. Endodontic treatment is a safe and effective way to save your tooth and maintain your oral health.
