Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the treatment of inflammatory processes in tooth tissue, ie the neural tissue of the tooth and its root, ie root canals, which is located in the so-called ” tissue pulp. Due to the penetration of the caries into the inside of the tooth, the infection of the tooth pulp occurs. The pump consists of blood vessels and nerves, and is located inside the root canals and in the tooth itself. Infection causes inflammation, resulting in great pain and inflammation of the surrounding tissues. If left untreated, it can cause dangerous complications for the patient.
Inflammation of the “dental nerve” with or without the inflammation of the surrounding bone tissue requires endodontic treatment – which implies the mechanical removal of the diseased “dental nerve” from the root of the teeth. The resulting space is expanded, disinfected and permanently filled with material that forever remains in the tooth.
