Did you know that the Greek meaning of the word endodontics is “inside the tooth?” Endodontic issues may result in a situation where the inside of the tooth has been diseased or injured. This would require the attention of an endodontic specialist. Endodontic treatments that can be performed include root canal treatments, traumatic dental injury treatments, and apicoectomy. No matter how many great tooth replacement options there are, there’s nothing like having your natural teeth. Endodontics focuses on saving teeth that are in danger. So if your tooth is in danger in any way, you’re most likely going to be meeting an endodontist.
