    Endodontics is the form of dentistry that deals directly with the pulp of the tooth, as well as the tissues around the tooth. Some of the more common procedures involved in endodontics include root canals, treatment of gum disease, dental trauma, and dealing with damaged nerves or a cracked tooth. The tooth pulp is comprised of nerves, lymphatic tissue, venules, and other parts. When these areas become damaged, that is when a dentist might find it necessary to perform surgery. Endodontics was first recognized as a special branch of dentistry in the year 1963. At this time, programs began to develop to train future dentists in this branch of dental care. Students learned to help their patients avoid unnecessary pain by performing specialized procedures on their teeth, like root canals, and treatment of other painful cases. However, endodontics still falls under the umbrella of general dentistry. Some insurance companies offer coverage for these dental procedures. Other times, it may be measured on a case by case basis, and vary depending on the cost and after care required for the procedure. Professionals work closely with the health care industry to provide the best surgery, after treatment therapy, and still keep these procedures at a low cost. If you have an upcoming surgery for a tooth pain issue, or gum disease, take a few moments to research endodontics online. Just choose any search engine and enter in keywords like "dental care," "endodontics procedures," and "root canal." You can also contact your insurance company to find out what care and coverage options they offer.
