“Endo” is the Greek word for “inside” and “odont” is Greek for “tooth.” Endodontic treatment treats the inside of the tooth. Usually, the best resource to answer all of these questions is dentist. At Smiles for Kids, we want to provide you with a comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide to dental hygiene.

What is endodontics treatment?

Tooth abcess evolves as a result of dental pulp bacterical infection (mostly because of cavity). While bacterias are attacking the nerve, pain is going bigger and with time is decreasing. If the tooth is not treatened at all, then the abscess becomes gangrene which is spreading through the root of the tooth and crosses over his top devastating it. At stronger infection it is creating a purulent content which more agresively devastates bones with strong pains.

How to prevent and remove the toothache?

Treating tooth in time from cavity and bad fillings can prevent tooth abscess. But if it comes to tooth abscess, dentist will remove dental pulp (nerve) or his remainings and necrotic tissue in root canal, desinfect or even sterilize a canal, and fill it till top with permanent filling.
