What is Endodontics?
Endodontology is the Latin term for the science that deals with causes, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the dental pulp as well as their consequences. The scientific field of Endodontics deals specifically with the problems of the dental roots. Teeth that have undergone proper root treatment can last a lifetime without complications. If a root canal treatment hasn't been performed correctly it can cause problems after days, months and even years. The causes of bad root treatment and how you can avoid them can be seen in the following videos: “caries,”“root treatment,”and “plaque.” Endodontology involves root treatment, radioectomy, root amputation and many more therapies that deal with the endodont-the root canal system. These treatments are performed by an endodontist. Please note that endodontist always works with a cofferdam, head worn loupe and/or a microscope. You can find more details in the respective videos.
