It is called endodontics, endo (interior) and odontos (tooth), a type of treatment that is performed in dentistry. It consists of the removal of the dental pulp and the subsequent filling and sealing of the pulp cavity with an inert material. It is also known as root canal treatment.
Endodontic therapy consists of the total removal of the dental pulp. It is applied to fractured teeth, with deep caries that show lesions in their pulp tissue that are found as pulpitis. This is irreversible and the only therapeutic option is the total removal of the dental pulp, and the three-dimensional filling of the dental canal. Pulpitis is frequently caused by deep dental caries that reach the dental pulp and infection by infection in it, causing continuous and permanent pain that increases with cold, hot stimuli, sweet or acidic foods.
