Endodontics (Root Canals)
Pulp, the soft tissue inside the tooth, contains connective tissue, blood vessels and nerves, all of which are essential to a tooth’s development. Later in life, however, the pulp may become infected as a result of the bacterial insult, associated with tooth decay, or mechanical trauma. Infection leads to a variety of symptoms including tenderness, trouble chewing, a mild to severe toothache and even fever. If you have pulp infection in one of your teeth, eventually you could lose the tooth.
