At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. If the dental pulp has become diseased or injured, endodontic treatment is required to save the tooth. Endodontists perform all aspects of root canal therapy, including routine as well as complex root canals, re-treatments and endodontic surgery (apicoectomy).
