Endodontics includes the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of dental disease.

An endodontist is a specialist who diagnoses and treats diseases and injuries to the pulp, periodontium, and surrounding tissues of the teeth. He or she is able to restore the affected teeth, remove the root canal filling material, and provide the patient with advice on preventing further problems.

Endodontists are trained to perform various procedures to diagnose and treat dental diseases.

6 Reasons to See an Endodontist

When you have dental pain, your first instinct may be to see a dentist. But it is important to see an endodontist if you experience pain while chewing, eating, or drinking.

This type of pain is caused by the pulp and periapical tissues of the tooth.

  1. Dental Infections

If you experience pain, swelling, or abscess, then you may have a dental infection. You should see an endodontist for diagnosis and treatment.

  1. Broken Teeth

Broken teeth are often painful. This pain can be relieved with the help of an endodontist.

An emergency is defined as a medical condition requiring immediate medical attention.

Examples of dental emergencies include:

  • A sharp or dull pain
  • Aching

  1. Pulp Therapy

Pulp therapy is a term used to describe the treatment of inflamed or infected pulp.

When the pulp becomes infected, it can cause serious complications. If the pulp becomes infected, it can cause:

  • A toothache
  • Gum disease
  • Infection
  1. Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy (RCT) is the removal of the infected or dead pulp from the tooth.

This is done to stop the infection and promote healing. It is usually performed during a routine cleaning or a tooth repair.

An endodontist can perform RCT.
