What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a specialty of dentistry that deals with root canal problems. It is sometimes referred to as ‘root canal therapy.’ Every tooth’s root canal system contains dental pulp. Sometimes the dental pulp can become infected, and it may need to be removed. This is the basis of endodontics or root canal therapy.

We’ll walk you through all your options. Transparency and client experience is our utmost priority as we want to make sure you make informed decisions about your dental care.

As this is a specialized branch of dentistry, dentists will have to go through an additional three years of studies on top of their dental degree to become qualified endodontists. Endodontists are qualified to diagnose and treat anything from tooth pain to dental trauma. There are instances where a tooth may get reinfected and will require re-treatment. This is usually done by endodontists, and the process typically involves the diagnosis and treatment plan to help relieve some of the patient’s pain.

Dental Referrals

When your general dentists has trouble dealing with a situation, they may refer you to us. This is perfectly normal, and it simply means your situation requires a specialist’s attention. One of the most common treatments we perform here at Carrington Dental is root canal therapy. We would normally begin by drilling a hole into the infected tooth. We would then treat the infection by removing the infected pulp and sealing the tooth. At the end of the procedure, we would add a cap to help protect your tooth’s structure.
