Endodontics is the art and science of treating and replacing tissues within the body of the tooth, the tooth pulp, as well as the tissue surrounding and supporting the tooth, especially those tissues at the root end and the periapical tissues. Most endodontic patient treatment scenarios involve thorough removal of injured or diseased pulp tissues, and replacement with biocompatible sealing materials.
Endodontic education of dental students, endodontic residents, and practicing dentists is a vital part of the specialty. The Endodontic Department enjoys a close relationship with all aspects of dental education and care, with specialty clinics close by and frequent interaction with dental students and dental faculty in other areas of dentistry.
