Endodontics

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry dedicated to saving infected teeth. While an endodontist is trained in several different procedures, the most common is root canal treatment.

What is dental pulp?

The soft tissue at the centre of a tooth is the dental pulp. This tissue contains the tooth’s blood vessels and nerve endings.

How does the pulp become infected?

Tooth decay creates cavities in the teeth that enable bacteria to enter the central pulp chamber. A tooth becomes infected when bacteria penetrate the tooth’s surface and attack the pulp.

A crack that forms while chewing or through an accidental injury can also allow bacteria to enter the tooth.

What are the symptoms of a dental pulp infection?

Patients with a pulp infection may notice severe, persistent toothache, discomfort in the jaw, swelling in their gum or sensitivity.

What does an endodontist do besides root canal treatments?

An endodontist has undergone specialist training to perform more complex procedures. These include re-root canals or an apicectomy when the first attempt to save the tooth has failed.

When performing a root canal treatment, a dentist may place a tiny post into the canal to support a crown. While complications are rare, an endodontist will perform a post-removal procedure.
