Study, diagnosis and treatment

Endodontics is the branch concerning the study, the diagnosis and the treatment of dental pulp, the innermost part of the tooth containing nerves, arterioles, venules and Periradicular tissues (tissues that surround the root of a tooth).

The most known, and feared, endodontics procedure is the root canal treatment or devitalisation. This treatment involves removing the infected nerve, cleaning and disinfecting the entire root canal system and filling and sealing the root canal system.

Devitalisation aims to remove the injured and necrotic dental pulp, caused by deep decay or tooth fracture, to preserve the tooth, avoid extraction and prevent periodontal diseases.

The dentist removes the nerve and blood-vessels, cleans and disinfects with sodium hypochlorite and proceeds by filling and sealing the root canal system with filling materials; the filling prevents the reformation of infections. The final step consists of restoring the chewing function of the dental element.
