Why have Endodontic treatment?

The dental profession’s most important goal is to maintain the health and integrity of patients’ dentition through prevention and, when necessary, reconstructive treatment. Throughout the last decade, dentistry witnessed a biomechanical revolution in endodontics. This revolution provided the public with treatment options never before available to them.

Endodontic treatment and retreatment, as well as diagnosis and endodontic surgery, achieve new levels of success and predictability. The development of nickel-titanium files, coupled with improvements in devices, such as the apex locator and the incorporation of microscopy and microsurgical instruments, created a whole new paradigm in treatment. These advances place endodontic care at the forefront as the primary treatment of choice for tooth retention when the dental pulp is compromised or when the removal of the dental pulp would facilitate other reconstructive dental treatment.
