Endodontics is a dental specialty dealing with tooth pulp and tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. Endodontics involves many procedures such as root canal therapy, treating cracked teeth and dental trauma. The signs of root canal problems are familiar: severe pain, swelling, sensitivity to hot or cold water or a darkening tooth. At our Lima dental clinic, you will be surprised how comfortable modern root canal therapy can be.
Each tooth is like a small organism. It has canals running through a pulp that provides nourishment to your teeth. Canals can become damaged either by a cavity or a tooth fracture, and the pulp may get infected and die. The procedure at our Lima dental clinic is simple: cleaning out the canals, filling them in and putting a custom CEREC crown atop.
