Endodontic treatment, or root canal treatment
Endodontics is the dental specialty concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp. Its main aim is to save natural teeth so that they keep all their masticatory functions and appearance of a healthy tooth.
The main reason for dental pulpal problems has been related to bacterial contamination of the root canals. Therefore, significantly reducing the bacterial load within the root canal system, and then filling the canals with an inert obturating material aid in preventing bacterial re-infection.
Endodontic therapy is not only performed when pain relief from an infected or inflamed pulp is required. It is also done to prevent adverse signs and symptoms from the surrounding sequelae and promote the healing and repair of the surrounding periradicular tissues.
