What is endodontic treatment?
“Endo” is the Greek word for “inside” and “odont” is Greek for “tooth”. Endodontic treatment treats the inside of the tooth.
To understand endodontic treatment, it helps to know something about the anatomy of the tooth. Inside the tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called the dentist, is a soft tissue called the pulp. The pulp contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, and creates the surrounding hard tissues of the tooth during development.
The pulp extends from the crown of the tooth to the tip of the roots where it connects to the tissues surrounding the root. The pulp is important during a tooth’s growth and development. However, once a tooth is fully mature it can survive without the pulp, because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it.
Advanced microscopes have increased the performance and predictability of endodontic procedures. The most obvious benefits of the microscope are the higher levels of magnifications and superior illumination. Magnification of 4 to 10 is ideal and the fiber optic light adds brightness in a concentrated area. Microscopic endodontics has enhanced our capabilities to perform clinical procedures that were previously unpredictable, and frequently impossible to accomplish.
