Endodontics Endodontic is the branch of dentistry dealing with the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp, or the inner substance of the tooth (pulp canal therapy; root canal therapy).
Diagnostic Services Diagnostic Services are used for the analysis or detection of dental conditions, using cutting edge methodology, encompassed with state of the art dental technology.

To understand a root canal procedure, it helps to know about the anatomy of the tooth. Inside the tooth,
under the white enamel and a hard layer called the dentin, is a soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp
contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, and helps to grow the root of your tooth during
development. In a fully developed tooth, the tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth
continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.

Endodontic treatment treats the inside of the tooth. Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp
becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep decay,
repeated dental procedures on the tooth, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the tooth. In addition,
trauma to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks. If pulp
inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.

How does endodontic treatment save the tooth?

During root canal treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is
carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha.
Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection. After restoration, the tooth
continues to function like any other tooth.

Saving me natural tooth with root canal treatment has many advantages:
• Efficient chewing
• Normal biting force and sensation
• Natural appearance
• Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain
Endodontic treatment helps you maintain your natural smile, continue eating the foods you love and
limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, most teeth that have had root canal treatment
can last as long as other natural teeth and often for a lifetime.
