Dr. Enneking and Dr. Flores believe the best way to treat oral issues is to prevent them from being able to happen in the first place. But some things can’t be avoided - like genetics and accidents. Endodontics may be needed to take care of what is ailing you.
When Dr. Enneking and Dr. Flores focus on diagnosing, determine the cause, preventing, and treating diseases involving dental pulp they are dealing with endodontics. This may involve removing nerves and pulp cavity tissues and replacing them with biocompatible filling materials. Endodontics can also involve root and pulp canal therapy.
Did you know that your dental pulp is actually alive? That’s right. Beneath the hard outer enamel and calcified dentin tissue lies a layer of cells and living connective tissue called dental pulp. Nerves and blood vessels run throughout dental pulp, which goes all the way down to the root of the tooth. At some point dental pulp may be injured or become infected. Endodontics aims to determine what is going on with your dental pulp and finding appropriate solutions.
To properly diagnose an endodontic issue Dr. Enneking and Dr. Flores may ask you a series of questions that are accompanied by an examination. Depending on your diagnosis, they may suggest removing some nerves and pulp cavity tissues. To do so, root or pulp therapy may be suggested. Surgery or pulpal regeneration and apexification are other endodontic procedures consider when dental pulp needs to be removed.
