Endodontics can save your tooth from bacteria residing inside the inner tissue of your tooth and prevent severe dental issues or even tooth loss.

What is endodontics?

Endodontics is the dental specialty concerned with the treatment of dental pulp and includes root canal treatment. Root canal treatments treat the soft tissue inside your tooth when cavities or injuries have allowed bacteria in and resulted in infection of the pulp of the inner tooth. Endodontic procedures involve procedures inside the tooth to help remove bacteria, eliminate infections, and reduce the risk of losing the tooth.

Why may I require endodontics treatment?

Various activities and daily life can cause an injury to one or multiple teeth, or there may be a larger cavity that is at risk of getting infected. Neglected dental issues can develop into severe infections, resulting in the need to remove the infected tooth or leading to even more serious oral health problems.

Although you cannot determine whether you require endodontic treatment or not, your dentist will be able to tell you during your visit. Spotting dental issues at an early stage can protect your natural teeth and help them serve you longer.

What are the symptoms of tooth canal infection?

  • Severe toothache or even headache
  • Pain in your jaw and gums
  • Discomfort or ache during eating and drinking
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
  • Swelling, bleeding of gums
