What Is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that deals with the study and treatment of the dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of a tooth. This field focuses on diagnosing and treating tooth pain and performing root canal treatment and other procedures relating to the interior of the tooth. 

At Reynolda Smiles, our endodontists are experts in managing and alleviating dental pain and saving teeth that are at risk.

What Is Tooth Pulp?

Tooth pulp is the soft area within the center of the tooth, containing nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. It’s the part of the tooth that creates dentin, the material that contributes to the bulk of the tooth structure. When the pulp gets infected or injured, it can lead to severe pain and sensitivity, making endodontic intervention necessary.

Signs Of A Tooth Infection

Recognizing the signs of a tooth infection is key to timely and effective treatment. Common indicators include severe toothache, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swelling, and tenderness in the nearby gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s crucial to seek professional help at Reynolda Smiles immediately.

Endodontic Treatment

Endodontic treatment involves procedures that address issues within the tooth pulp. The primary goal is to relieve pain, save the tooth, and prevent further infection. Our practice employs the latest technology and techniques to ensure that these treatments are as comfortable and effective as possible.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy is a common endodontic treatment used to treat infected or inflamed pulp. This procedure involves removing the damaged pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth, and then filling and sealing it. Despite common misconceptions, root canal therapy at Reynolda Smiles is a pain-free process that can save your natural tooth and restore its function.

Vital Pulp Therapy

Vital pulp therapy is an alternative to root canal therapy, used when the pulp is injured but not irreversibly damaged. This treatment focuses on preserving healthy pulp tissue, which is beneficial for the continued growth and development of the tooth, especially in children. Our skilled endodontists at Reynolda Smiles can evaluate if this treatment is suitable for you.

The Importance Of Endodontics

Endodontics has revolutionized dental care, allowing us to save teeth that would have previously required extraction. This field is crucial in treating injuries and infections, preserving natural teeth, and preventing the need for more invasive procedures. Maintaining your natural teeth contributes to better oral health, functionality, and overall aesthetics.
