What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of teeth. Essentially, it deals with the inner workings of the tooth, including the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. The most common procedure associated with endodontics is root canal therapy, which involves removing infected or damaged pulp from the tooth’s interior, cleaning and disinfecting the root canal space, and sealing it to prevent further infection. 

Endodontists, dentists with advanced training in this field, utilize state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to preserve natural teeth and alleviate pain caused by dental infections or trauma. As endodontists, Dr. Ber and Dr. Gaudet have extensive training and experience performing root canal therapy, endodontic retreatment, and surgical procedures. Their commitment to staying abreast of the latest advancements in endodontic techniques ensures that patients receive the highest standard of care possible.

Overall, endodontics plays a crucial role in maintaining oral health and saving teeth that would otherwise require extraction.
