Endodontics – the word derives from the Greek endo ”inside”; and odons ”tooth” – deal with the tooth pulp and the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth.
Endodontists perform a variety of procedures including root canal therapy, surgery, treating cracked teeth, and treating dental trauma. Root canal therapy is one of the most common procedures. If the pulp (containing nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue and fibrous tissue) becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is often required to save the tooth.
