What is Endodontics?
Endodontic Specialists of Laguna Hills

Endodontics is the specialty of dentistry that deals with diseases of the dental pulp and its supporting structures.  The outermost layer of a tooth is the hardest tissue in the body and is called ENAMEL. Enamel is supported by a hard inner layer called DENTIN that contains soft PULP tissue in its central core.  Pulp tissue is composed of blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that actually made the surrounding hard dentin during tooth development.  Pulp tissue can become damaged or diseased for a variety of reasons.  


The pulp receives its vitality from vessels that enter through small openings at the ends of the roots. Although the pulp is important during development of the tooth, it is not essential to maintain the tooth. Endodontic (root canal) treatment removes diseased pulp tissue from the tooth, often relieveing pain or infection, allowing you to maintain your tooth.  After endodontic treatment, the tooth continues to be nourished and maintained by the surrounding tissues.
