Endodontic Treatments

Saving Your Natural Teeth with Advanced Root Canal Procedures

Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but sometimes, damage or decay can affect the inside of your tooth, leading to infections or abscesses. Endodontic treatments, commonly known as root canals, can help save your natural teeth and prevent the need for extractions. In this article, we'll explore the different types of endodontic treatments available and when they're necessary.

What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the inside of your tooth, specifically the pulp and nerves. When the pulp or nerves inside your tooth become infected or damaged, they can cause severe pain and sensitivity. Endodontic treatments aim to remove the infected or damaged tissue and restore the tooth to its normal function.

When Do You Need Endodontic Treatment?

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp or nerves inside your tooth become inflamed or infected. This can happen due to deep cavities, cracked teeth, trauma, or repeated dental procedures on the same tooth. Some common signs that you may need endodontic treatment include:
**Severe toothache
**Sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks
**Swelling or tenderness in the gums
**Darkening or discoloration of the tooth
**A pimple or bump on the gums near the affected tooth

Endodontic treatments are advanced procedures that can help save your natural teeth and prevent the need for extractions. Root canal therapy and endodontic surgery are the two main types of endodontic treatments available. If you're experiencing severe toothache, sensitivity, or swelling, it's important to see your dentist right away. With early detection and proper treatment, you can preserve your natural teeth and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.
