Endodontics - a Dental Speciality Focusing on Root Canals

Endodontics is a specialized area in the dental field which focuses on root canal procedures. Root canals are normally performed on dental patients who have toothaches or tooth sensitivity due to pulp that is inflamed or infected. The pulp of your tooth is made up of blood vessels, nerves, and soft connective tissue.
