Endodontics involves treating the nerve that is located inside the tooth and its roots. Root canal treatments are part of endodontics. This treatment becomes necessary when the dental pulp is affected by a cavity or trauma or when it undergoes necrosis (dies). It can also be used for preventive purposes after certain restorations are performed.
