Year End Smile Upgrades: Endodontics

Posted .

If you wish to keep your smile in optimum condition, it is important to always visit your dentist for the proper oral health care treatments. If you have suffered from any broken or damaged teeth, this may mean the pulp is damaged as well. Typically, a damaged pulp means a tooth needs to be extracted, but with highly complex procedures such as endodontics, it may be possible to remove the pulp without removing the tooth. One highly effective treatment option to consider is a root canal therapy.

If you are looking to restore the functionality back to a damaged tooth, an endodontic treatment may be required. If a tooth has been damaged to the point that damage occurs to your pulp, the pulp will need to be removed. Using endodontic procedures such as root canals, the pulps of teeth can be removed and allow the tooth the function once again for numerous abilities including chewing food and keeping your smile complete.

Endodontists receive an additional 2 years of medical training beyond dental school to learn the skills necessary to perform oral surgeries and endodontic treatments such as root canal to save broken and damaged teeth. In fact, every year in the United States, millions of teeth are saved with endodontic treatments.
