Dental issues are not exclusive to the outside of teeth. For problems beneath the tooth surface, you need the expertise of an endodontist.

What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a branch of specialised dentistry that focuses on repairing tissues inside the tooth — this connective tissue is referred to as tooth pulp. The pulp contains the nerves, blood vessels and other tissues located deep inside the tooth. Though general dentists also complete root canals and other treatments, patients gain extra confidence when pulp issues are handled by an endodontist.

Endodontists commonly treat damage caused by:

Tooth decay that has migrated inside the tooth
A tooth abscess that forms when bacteria enters the interior of a tooth or gums
Tooth injuries from trauma
A cracked tooth that extends into the pulp

Specialists in Tooth Pulp

Endodontists complete at least two more years of training beyond dental school to develop the technical skills required to diagnose and treat issues within the tooth. Experts in root canal procedures, implants and other complex dental procedures in the interior of the tooth, these specialists dedicate their time to treating dental pulp issues.

Given the important role they play in treating pulp and root tissues, endodontists have been referred to as specialists in saving teeth.

Why See an Endodontist?

Due to their advanced knowledge, an endodontist can swiftly diagnose and treat dental issues within the tooth.
