L'endodontic is the inner part of the tooth. This space, called pulp chamber in the jargon dentalThe pulp contains living cells, blood vessels and nerve fibers. The pulp extends into the root canals.

Deterioration of the pulp leads to a lesion in the apical area (the tooth tip). The nerve may become necrotic. The death of the cells inside the tooth can lead to severe pain and infection. We recommend that you seek preventive treatment to avoid the following dental emergencies.

Several factors can cause this type of endodontic lesion :

  • pulpal exposure following caries or deep restoration
  • a coronary crack joining the pulp
  • an accident or trauma to the jaw
  • severe irritation

Visit endodontic therapy First, a hole is dug down to the pulp. L'endodontist then proceeds with chemical and mechanical cleaning of the pulp chamber and canals. It eliminates necrotic cells and disinfects theinside the tooth. The treatment is completed by tightly sealing the canals and the pulp chamber with a suitable product. This greatly reduces the risk of subsequent reinfection.


The channels in the tooth root can sometimes have extremely small diameters. Despite the powerful lights of our dental practicesThe entrance to the root canals is sometimes difficult to see with the naked eye.
