ENDODONTIST

Introduction:

Endodontists are dentists who specialize in the treatment of the pulp and roots of teeth. They perform root canals, which involve removing the pulp from the inside of the tooth, cleaning and shaping the inside of the tooth, and then filling it with a rubber-like material. Endodontists also treat other conditions of the pulp, such as infections and injuries.

Root canals are necessary when the pulp becomes damaged or infected. This can happen due to decay, trauma, or other conditions. Root canal treatment is used to save the tooth and prevent further damage.

Endodontists receive additional training after dental school to learn how to perform root canals and other procedures related to the pulp. They use special instruments and techniques to access the inside of the tooth and treat the pulp. Endodontists are an important part of the dental team and play a vital role in preserving oral health. They provide a valuable service to their patients by helping to save teeth that would otherwise be lost due to decay or infection.
