Endodontists specialize in treating the tissue, known as the pulp, found inside the tooth. These dentists have undergone an advanced postgraduate education to treat dental diseases and other endodontic-related problems.
This type of dental specialty is indispensable in treating diseases and infections found in the dental pulp. Endodontic dental procedures can help save your teeth and prevent the implantation of structures such as bridges and implants. Endodontists remove any inflamed and/or infected pulp by cleaning out your tooth’s canal system and then sealing the space.request an appointment
