South East London dentists treat the inside of patients teeth with endodontics

12 / 08 / 2011

Having trained for many years to the highest standards and then built up a wealth of experience, your local dentist will be an expert in every aspect of the health of your mouth. While most of us will be familiar with the work done on the exterior of teeth such as plaque and tartar removal, dentists also work with the interiors of teeth too.

Teeth are multi-faceted and what you see on the outside of a tooth is far from being the whole picture. Inside teeth there is a mass of material forming what is known as the pulp chamber. The health of these materials (which include nerves and blood vessels) is vital to the health of the whole tooth.

Thankfully most of us will not have to worry much about what is going on inside teeth because it tends to just take care of itself. But problems can occur, in the form perhaps of a tooth abscess. Any severe impact that strikes the mouth can damage the inside of teeth and leave you with infected material inside the pulp chamber.

When dentists practice endodontics, they are concerned with the interior of your teeth. The most well known example of endodontics is root canal treatment which is the process of removing infected material from the pulp chamber by entering the tooth through the root canal. This is carried out to avoid the need to drill into the tooth.

You might require root canal treatment if you find that you are suffering from chronic tooth ache that it is just not going away. Talk to your dentist in South East London if you want more information about the interior of teeth.
