What Are Endodontic Procedures?
The purpose of endodontic procedures is to treat the dental pulp, the soft tissue inside of each tooth. Dental pulp consists of tissue, blood vessels, and nerves that are integral in the development of the tooth. The dental pulp can become infected, which can cause pain and deterioration of the tooth. Endodontic procedures treat and prevent infection of the dental pulp with the goal of saving the natural tooth so that it can remain in place in your mouth.
