Endodontics is the dental speciality concerned with preserving the health of the living tissues within a tooth and preventing infection of the surrounding tissues. When an infection is present, the goal is to eliminate it and restore the tooth’s appearance and function.
Due to the fact that various structures in the facial, head, and neck region might mimic toothache, an endodontist can play a crucial role in obtaining an accurate diagnosis and implementing the right treatment measures. In cases where the condition may not have an odontogenic cause, a Pain Expert can be referred.
Root canal treatment is one of the most popular treatments performed by an endodontist.
