If you have suffered any damage to your teeth, including blunt trauma that has damaged your pulp, procedures must be given immediately to ensure the tooth has a chance to survive. Without endodontics treatments such as root canal therapies, a tooth with pulp damage often needs to be removed.
Although the pulp is the life source of the tooth, containing its nerve endings, connective tissues another blood vessels often necessary for the tooth’s survival, endodontists are able to save a tooth with complex medical procedures via a pulp removal. Endodontists typically receive an additional two years of advanced medical training beyond dental school to allow them to perform these complex procedures. Through treatments such as root canal therapies, teeth can be saved.
Endodontics is responsible for saving millions of teeth every year in the United States. Not only do endodontics treatments such as root canals save teeth, but they allow teeth to continue functioning as intended as well as allow your smile to keep its natural look without resorting to an artificial treatment such as a tooth replacement. If you have suffered damage to your pulp, visit your dentist to determine if an endodontic treatment such as a root canal therapy will be necessary.
