What is Endodontics?

Endodontics is a specialty of Dentistry that deals with diseases of the dental pulp and its supporting structures.

Endodontic Treatment or Root Canal Treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain and/or lead to an abscess.

The success of root canal therapy depends to a large extent on the skill of the endodontist. Ian Hunt is an experienced endodontist and works part time as a Speciality Dentist in Endodontics with the Central Manchester University Foundation NHS Trust.
