Endodontics is a dental specialty that involves therapeutic means of recovering an infected pulp chamber. An endodontist is a highly trained and specialized dentist who has earned at least two years of study and clinical training in endodontics in addition to the four years at a dental school.
An endodontist would regularly attend continuing education classes and seminars to stay up-to-date with the latest technology for treatment and diagnostics.
An endodontist is capable of handling root canal procedures and perform dental fillings for unhealthy teeth structures. Infections of the dental pulp within your teeth's pulp chamber are generally caused by the bacterial attack and deep cavity issues. They can also perform root canal re-treatment procedures that didn't show initial results. An endodontist also handles extractions procedures.
The common causes for an infected dental pulp are deep cavities, broken teeth structures, external injury or trauma.
A root canal is an endodontic treatment that repairs unhealthy or severely damaged teeth. During your root canal procedure, the endodontist will remove the damaged tissues inside the pulp chamber. Later, the canal will be cleaned and sealed with a filling.
