Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the nerves of the teeth. Root canals are the most common endodontic procedures. When a tooth becomes infected, it's usually related to the nerves in the tooth's root and those infected nerves need to be removed. If left untreated, the infection can turn into an abscess, a serious problem that causes pain and may result in loss of bone in the jaw.
