Endodontics defined

Endodontics is focused on root canal therapy. Many patients have heard of root canal procedures but are unsure as to what it entails. Root canal therapy is an oral surgery performed to maintain a natural tooth that has been affected by infection, decay, an abscess, or trauma. This procedure requires extensive training to perform, and Dr. Christopher Lim can provide this right in his dental office.

How does a dentist save a tooth?

A large cavity, infection, or other problem that affects the dental pulp inside of a tooth can leave a tooth at risk. Without endodontic therapy, patients must have the tooth removed to eliminate the pain. This results in further expenses to replace the tooth with a denture, dental bridge, or dental implant. Performing root canal therapy allows the patient to maintain the natural tooth. It involves removing the dental pulp, which can cause the tooth to become brittle. However, placing a dental crown over the top offers an extra layer of protection.
