Endodontics takes care of the internal structure of each tooth through prevention, diagnosis and treatment and its purpose is to treat the tooth as a whole, maintaining or recovering the health of the tissues that are inside the teeth and directly around it.
In some cases when there is a very acute pain where the patient complains of not being able to eat, sleep and the pain is so intense that extends to the ear and head, possibly we are facing a caries that reaches the dental pulp and the nerve of the tooth. In these situations the treatment to be done is a devitalization, and should be cleaned the entire region of the tooth where the caries is completely removed, as well as the pulp of the tooth, because in this case, it was contaminated by numerous bacteria resulting from active and untreated caries.
After disinfection of the root canal, which is the place through which the pulp passes, this space is sealed inwardly with a biocompatible material and the tooth can finally be rehabilitated by a conventional restoration or a ceramic piece that will bring better durability and resistance to the tooth.
