Endodontics Overview

Endodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry dealing with the tooth pulp, tissues, nerves and arterioles found inside the teeth. Dr. Yang is an endodontist and received additional dental training after completing dental school to enable him to perform both complex and simple procedures, including root canal therapy.

In the past, a tooth with a diseased nerve had to be removed immediately, but in most cases Dr. Yang can now save the natural tooth. In general, extracting the inner tooth structures and then sealing the resulting gap with a crown restores health and functionality to damaged teeth.
