A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year.
Root resorption is the process in which the body breaks down and absorbs tissue surrounding a tooth.
With the appropriate care, your teeth that have had endodontic treatment will last as long as other natural teeth.
Generally, a root canal is all that is needed to save teeth with injured pulp from extraction.
Cracked teeth demonstrate many types of symptoms, including pain when chewing, temperature sensitivities, or even the release of biting pressure.
Injuries to the mouth can cause teeth to be pushed back into their sockets. Your endodontist or general dentist may reposition and stabilize your tooth.
Instruction for your endodontic treatment.
Endodontics is a branch of dentistry recognized by the American Dental Association involving treatment of the pulp (root canal) and surrounding tissues of the tooth.
