“Endodontics” involves treating the sensitive soft tissues inside of teeth. These “soft pulp” tissues contain blood vessels, connective tissues, and high numbers of nerve cells, making them critical to a tooth’s health and function. Root canals are one of the more common endodontic procedures, treating painful infections and inflammation that can develop in a tooth’s soft pulp. At Meadowmont Dentistry, we can relieve the intense pain caused by tooth infections while repairing the base structure of infected teeth to prevent dangerous abscesses and future infections. In most cases, our endodontic skills enable patients to keep teeth that may otherwise require removal if an infection is left unchecked.
