< p>Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the study and treatment of diseases of the endodontic tissues that form pulp and dentin. The most common service of endodontists (or endodontists) is the treatment of root canals and tooth cavities.
< h2>Types of endodontic diseases
The competencies of endodontics include the following diseases and anomalies:
In addition, a visit to the endodontist is expected in the case of upcoming prosthetics, as part of the preparatory stage.
< p>The regulation of canal treatment in endodontics involves several stages. First, a thorough examination of the damaged tooth or teeth is performed to determine whether it is appropriate to perform endodontic manipulations. It is carried out with the help of X-ray diagnostics. If you regularly visit a dentist and observe oral hygiene, the expediency of the procedures and the probability of saving teeth will be almost one hundred percent.

After that, direct work with the tissues begins, the removal of damaged tissue formations, as well as complete or partial removal of the nerve, if necessary.
The next stage of preparation for filling includes determining the length of the channels using a special device-apexlocator, instrumental processing of the channels to improve adhesion to the future seal, as well as thorough disinfection of all affected tissues.
And then – filling. The endodontist selects the most appropriate type of filling material based on the clinical picture, the characteristics of the course of the disease and the condition of the root canal after the intervention. As a filler, special pins, non-hardening pastes or dental cement can be used.
Sometimes, an endodontist may put medicine in the canal before permanent filling of the tooth and close the tooth with a temporary filling for several days to improve the final quality of treatment.
