“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 the 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 abscess evolves as a result of dental pulp bacterial infection (mostly because of the cavity). While bacterias are attacking the nerve, pain is going bigger and with time is decreasing. If the tooth is not treated 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 aggressively devastates bones with strong pains.
How to prevent and remove the toothache?
Treating tooth in time from the cavity and bad fillings can prevent tooth abscess. But if it comes to tooth abscess, the dentist will remove dental pulp (nerve) or his remainings and necrotic tissue in the root canal, disinfect or even sterilize a canal, and fill it till the top with a permanent filling.
