Most dental work and dental treatments focus on the exterior of the tooth. Tooth repairs, fillings and even dental crowns are treatments to the dentin and enamel which do not necessarily impact the live pulp inside the tooth. When the interior of the tooth is affected, a specialized type of dental treatment is needed. Endodontics is a dental specialty for treating the root system and live pulp inside teeth. At First Smile Family Dental, we offer endodontic therapy and dentistry at our dental center in Federal Way, WA.
The live pulp inside the tooth contains the nerve roots and blood supply that connects the tooth to the systems in the body. When the nerve roots and pulp are impacted by injury, decay or infection, it can jeopardize the tooth. Endodontics is a dental specialty that can preserve a tooth by removing infection inside the tooth and preventing the need for extraction. The most commonly used endodontic treatment is root canal therapy, which removes the nerve roots and pulp to save an infected tooth.
Internal Tooth Therapy
When the interior of your tooth needs treatment, you need a dentist who offers endodontics. This is a more complex area of dentistry, and is vital for saving infected teeth from extraction. The field of endodontics has improved greatly in the last few decades with new technology and techniques. Our dental center in Federal Way has the latest technology and an experienced dentist who specializes in performing endodontic therapy. Our endodontic treatment options include:
