Endodontics deals with the roots of the teeth. The most common endodontic therapy is a root canal, which involves removing infected pulp and then filling the tooth. Dental pulp is the soft tissue, nerves and blood vessels inside the tooth. When the pulp becomes infected, root canal therapy can save the tooth. Without a root canal, the infection will spread and eventually the tooth will fall out, requiring more costly dental implants or bridges to repair your bite. After a root canal, the tooth is dead because the nerve tissue and infection have been removed and the pain is gone. A filling or crown may be added to protect the tooth.
