- An Endodontist specializes in providing patients with root canals and retreatments. When the pulp inside of a tooth becomes damaged or infected, endodontic treatment is required to treat the area.
- Root damage is caused by chipped or broken teeth and numerous dental procedures causing the weakening of tooth.
- A toothache results once the area become inflamed. Untreated infection cans lead to an abscess, fever or blood infection. An endodontist removes the infected pulp by drilling out the core of the tooth. The cavity is replaced with filler and usually a crown.
