What Is Endodontics?

Posted on 10/31/2023 by Weo Admin
Image of tooth and dental pulp. The inner parts of the teeth are susceptible to issues. While the tooth enamel helps to protect the inner sensitive tissues, it can experience wear and tear due to injuries and acids. A weak enamel allows bacteria to enter the tooth, increasing the risk of infections. The good thing is that endodontics, a branch of dentistry, helps to diagnose and treat the pulp and the tissues surrounding the tooth's roots. Continue reading and learn more about endodontic treatment.

Endodontic Treatment Helps To Prevent Infections And Oral Complications

Tooth infections are common in adults and kids. If not treated, the infection can continue to spread to the entire tooth and the neighboring tooth. The infection can also damage the bone supporting the teeth, leading to tooth loss.

A missing tooth causes discomfort and oral health issues such as difficulty chewing and biting, changes in bite, and shifting of the neighboring teeth. In this case, endodontic treatment may involve a root canal. The root canal helps to alleviate pain and remove the decayed pulp to prevent further spread of infections.

Recovery After Endodontic Treatments Is Faster With Good Oral Care

When people hear about surgery, they think of complications and several months of healing. Nevertheless, this is not the case with endodontic treatment. While you may experience sensitivity, pain, and swelling after the treatment, a dentist may prescribe medication to relieve the discomfort. They may also give instructions on how to prevent risks and fasten recovery.

For instance, the professional may advise you to avoid smoking or stick to foods to prevent the risk of bacteria accumulation. They may also educate you about foods that help to boost the immune system and ensure a quick recovery process. Are you experiencing signs of tooth injury or decay? Contact us, and our endodontists will examine the inner tooth tissues to determine whether you need a root canal.
