By endodontic treatment, and because the dental nerve has been injured, the dental pulp is cleaned and that hole is filled with a material that is biocompatible.
It is one of the most common treatments that we perform in the clinic. It is commonly called “killing the nerve.” Patients who require endodontics are because they suffer significant pain and their goal is to save the tooth.
They usually come to the consultation because they have suffered caries that have not been treated in time and this has caused an injury to the dental pulp.
The pulp is the soft tissue of the tooth that is made up of nerves and blood vessels, helps in the formation of the tooth and helps to notice the sense of cold and heat.
Endodontics allows us to save the tooth and avoids more extreme solutions such as implants.
