Endodontics is the area of dental care focused on studying and treating dental pulp. Dental pulp is the innermost layer of the tooth. It includes the living connective tissue of the tooth as well as the tooth nerves and blood vessels. When this pulp becomes infected, diseased or sustains an injury, it can lead to significant discomfort and sensitivity and may eventually cause the tooth to die if left untreated. Dr. Bruno Giglio provides a number of endodontic treatments to remove the infected tooth tissue, save your teeth from extraction and restore your oral health.
The endodontic treatments offered at MI Smile Team include:
While there are many endodontic treatments available, the most common type of treatment is root canal therapy. Root canal treatment involves removing the injured and infected tissues, cleaning the tooth and filling it with a medicated material to prevent reinfection. The tooth is then capped with a dental crown to protect it and restore its full function and appearance.
When you visit our dentist, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and mouth to determine which type of endodontic care is right for your needs. We will discuss your options and your oral health with you before creating a treatment plan that can restore your health and smile.
