Endodontics (Root Canals)
Endodontics is the branch of dentistry dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp and tissue that is found in the interior of the tooth and, thanks to which, the tooth is nourished and perceives external stimuli.
When the pulp, commonly known as the nerve, becomes inflamed or infected, it must be treated otherwise it can trigger pain and infection. The most frequent cause of this condition is a cavity, although sometimes injuries or fractures can trigger pulpal problems. The treatment consists of cleaning the interior of the tooth, disinfecting it and filling it in a three-dimensional way with a sealing material called gutta-percha.
