Like Dr. Braverman, many dentists have received specialized training in order to provide endodontal care. When a patient has a damaged tooth, they will check to see if the pulp has been infected or become inflamed. Usually, pulp infections will be accompanied by pain, but this is not always the case.
In fact, infections of the pulp can require complex and delicate care, particularly when the affected tooth is a molar. A root canal can address this problem. During this treatment, the channel inside the tooth root is shaped and cleaned, and then, the tooth is filled and sealed.
Afterward, a tooth might be covered with a crown in order to protect it. Sometimes, an infection in the pulp can become bad enough that the gums are swollen and filled with pus. In that case, care will be taken to drain the pulp and gum area in order to alleviate the pain. Antibiotics may be inserted into pulp in order to fight the infection.
Besides root canals, endodontists are also called upon to treat broken teeth, to diagnose root problems and to replant teeth that have been extracted or knocked out. They also might be called into a hospital to examine a patient who has suffered some kind of dental trauma.
These are advanced treatments that require particular skill, training and experience. These problems are of a serious nature, so the procedures are about more than just improving cosmetic appearance. Endodontal procedures protect the patient from even worse symptoms and improve quality of life by alleviating sources of pain and discomfort.
