Endodontics

Many people routinely seek out a dentist for emergency tooth repair services. Most of the time the damage can be fixed by filling the cracked enamel or recreating the missing portions of a healthy tooth. Other times, however, the damage goes past the outer portion of the tooth, also called the enamel, and inside the tooth to the tooth pulp. When the inside of the tooth is infected or inflamed it may require the often dreaded root canal procedure, otherwise known as endodontic treatment. Endodontic treatment can be performed by a general dentist or may require the expertise of an endodontist—a dentist who specializes in matters concerning the inside of the tooth, namely the tooth pulp which is comprised of nerve tissue and blood vessels.
