Endodontics, or the treatment of the root canal, consists in removing the pulp, which is the inner part of the tooth. It contains the artery, veins, nerves and connective tissue, which “feeds” the tooth. When it is inflamed or infected it must be removed to prevent germs from making their way into the bone that houses the tooth.
The nerve gets inflamed because it is infected and this infection can spread to the bone. That’s why, at Clínica Dental Oris, we always fight an infection when we perform an endodontic treatment. The inside of the tooth has to be properly disinfected and the source of infection has to be completely cured and healed.
Endodontic treatment requires great precision in terms of both diagnosis and execution. That’s why these procedures should be performed by professionals specially trained in this field. At Clínica Dental Oris we have a team that specialises in endodontics.
