Endodontics in Burnet, TX
Endodontics is a specialty focused on treating tooth roots. The most common endodontic procedure is root canal therapy, which involves removing infected or inflamed tooth pulp and then filling the canal where the pulp once was.
The dental pulp contains the soft tissue, nerves, and blood vessels inside the tooth. If it becomes infected or inflamed, a root canal treatment can save the tooth. Otherwise, the infection may spread, and the tooth may fall out, requiring costly restorations, such as bridges or dental implants to repair your bite.
The nerve tissue and blood supply are removed during a root canal treatment, meaning the treated tooth is dead. Over time, that causes the tooth to become brittle. That's why a filling and crown are necessary to protect and strengthen the tooth and prevent it from cracking.
