It is the area of Dentistry which allows treatment of teeth extremely destroyed by caries or with lesion / infections by removing the dental pulp and allowing the restauration of a tooth that otherwise would be extracted.
Teeth are living organs, although mineralized, with nerves and blood vessels responsible for their sensitivity and nutrition. When teeth lose too much structure, by cavities, fracture, wear, or any other cause; the chances of dental infection increase. Endodontics is the last resource before extraction of a tooth allowing, whenever possible, its restauration.
