Endodontics


Endodontics is the branch of clinical dentistry associated with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the pathosis of dental pulp and their sequel thus we can say that our primary goal of endodontic therapy is to create an environment within the root canal system which allows the healing and continued maintenance of health of perradicular tissue.

The Endodontic Clinic specializes in the study, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases associated with the roots of the teeth. Endodontic services aim to save the patient’s natural teeth by restoring dental health and function.

Since nothing is as good as the natural teeth, one should take care of them.

The endodontic therapy is a necessary treatment to cure damaged or diseased tooth.

Endodontic Dentistry is related to the field of dentistry related with tooth pulp and pulp related problems. Damage to teeth, such as cracks or deep cavities, can reach down to the nerve tissue and blood vessels residing in the soft pulp of the tooth.

Damage to the pulp can lead to painful swelling, damage to the jaw bones or muscles, and the formation of abscesses. If left unchecked, this could lead to loss of tooth or tooth removal.

Damaged pulp once led to the removal of the tooth. With today's advancement, however, dentists use a procedure called a root canal treatment to restore and protect the tooth's nerves and blood vessels hence saving the tooth.

Our clinic performs root canal treatment and other procedures to treat the inner tooth and roots and to restore teeth through placement of fillings or crowns.
