Dentistry’s specialized field of endodontics focuses on the intricate internal structures of teeth. Endodontics, which derives from the Greek term for “within the tooth,” refers to the tooth pulp, tissues, nerves, and arterioles. After graduating from dental school, endodontists continue their education in dentistry to get the skills necessary to carry out both sophisticated and straightforward operations, such as root canal therapy.

In the past, a tooth with a damaged nerve would be extracted right away, but endodontists may now typically save the original tooth. Typically, damaged teeth can be made healthy and functioning again by removing the inner tooth elements and filling the ensuing space with a crown.

Symptoms and signs of endodontic issues:

  • gum inflammation and sensitivity.

  • teeth that are delicate to the temperature of food.

  • suppleness when biting and chewing.

  • tooth tarnishing.

  • Unknown discomfort in the lymph nodes close by.

To preserve the natural tooth, endodontic therapy (also known as root canal therapy) is used. The majority of dentists concur that healthy, natural teeth are incomparable to the many cutting-edge restorations that are currently available.

Several of the main reasons for inner tooth injury are listed below:

  • bacterial illnesses

  • Chips and fractures

  • Injuries\sRemovals
