Root Canal Therapy in Tampa, FL
Endodontics is the specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on the treatment of the dental pulp and the tissues surrounding a tooth’s root. The dental pulp is the part of a tooth that’s encased by the dentin and enamel. The dental pulp is soft and contains nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels.
Sometimes, the dental pulp may become infected or inflamed as a result of decay or fracturing. When this happens, you may experience extreme pain or sensitivity, which necessitates professional intervention. General dentists can perform endodontic procedures such as root canals, but in some cases, you may need the services of a specialist dentist, namely an endodontist.

Root Canal Therapy
Usually known as root canal treatment, or endodontic therapy, root canal therapy involves removal of pulp tissue from the root canals. After removal, our dentist will clean out and disinfect your root canals, and then seal them with dental material. This process renders your tooth dead, but you’ll still be able to chew and bite with the affected tooth. The upside of this treatment is that you get to avoid an extraction and keep your natural tooth.
