What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is an area of dentistry which is concerned with inflammatory diseases and conditions associated with the dental pulp (the nerve and blood supply which supplies each tooth) as well as the surrounding tissues of the tooth root.

Pathologies related to the dental pulp are caused by a polymicrobial infection. These infections lead to inflammatory changes within the dental pulp (pulpitis) and ultimate degeneration of the dental pulp.

The ultimate aim of any endodontics procedures is to eliminate the infective organisms in order to restore health and function.
