What is and what the endodont does
The endodont performs a canal treatment if there is a pulp inflammation. The dentist is the one who can detect inflammation and then recommend you an endodontic treatment.
Why the pulp inflammation occurs
Deep grooves create cracks in the tooth enamel, and bacteria can penetrate the tooth pulp causing infections. The same happens when the tooth is subject to a shock or crack ,causing cracks or when a seal is made incorrectly. There are also situations where the infection starts from the inside, when the nerve dies and necroses. The most common cause of these inflammations is the obturating of the incorrectly performed canal. These are the first cause of unpublished chronic infections that lead to loss of the affected tooth over time.
