Endodontic treatment saves teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. Although the pulp is removed, the treated tooth remains alive, nourished by the surrounding tissues. There is no real substitute for your own tooth in terms of health and investment.
Endodontic treatment removes infected or damaged tissue from inside a tooth. This tissue, called the pulp, contains nerves and blood vessels that help nourish the tooth. After the pulp is removed, the pulp chamber and root canals arc cleaned, disinfected, filled and sealed. This means that the tooth can be preserved and resume function as normal. Endodontic treatment is usually completed with a crown to reinforce the tooth, as it might become brittle and prone to breaking.
