What is the definition of Endodontics?
Endodontics (from the Greek endo “inside”; and odons “tooth”) is one of the dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association and deals with the tooth pulp as well as the tissues surrounding the root of a tooth.
Our highly qualified dental practitioners perform a variety of procedures including root canal therapy, endodontic retreatment, oral surgery, treatment of cracked teeth and treatment of dental trauma in our North Chicago and Round Lake Beach dental offices.
Root canal therapy is one of the most common dental procedures. If the pulp, which containing nerves, arterioles, venules, lymphatic tissue, and fibrous tissue, becomes diseased or injured, endodontic treatment may be required to save the tooth.
