What is endodontic surgery?
Endodontic surgery is a procedure aimed at the pulp of a tooth. In most cases, endodontic surgery refers to root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is treatment for the infected or damaged pulp of a toot, which aims at eliminating infection and offering protection for the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.
What is an endodontist?
An endodontist is a dentist who specialises in the study and treatment of dental pulp. The word endodontic comes from the Greek word’s “endo” (meaning inside) and “odont” (meaning tooth). All dentists are trained in diagnosis and endodontic therapy; however, some teeth can be especially difficult to diagnose and may require a specialist.
