Endodontics, or root canal treatment, consist of removing the pulp tissue of the tooth and replace it with an inorganic filler to ensure internal closure of the piece.
Why is it necessary to fill a cavity?
A cavity forms cavities in the teeth which may affect the nerve. This can cause pain, swelling, mobility, thermal sensitivity, boils, etc. All this leads to tooth loss.
This treatment involves removal of the vascular-nervous package located inside the tooth which is the cause of dental pain.
Using special instruments the inside of the tooth is cleaned free from infection. Inside each tooth there are a network of vessels that are distributed within the tooth forming ductwork.
Endodontics aims to clean each duct and enable the tooth to be suitable for subsequent restoration.
