Endodontics (Endodontology) is that branch of dentistry that deals with the morphology, physiology, and pathology of the human dental pulp and tooth-supporting peri-radicular tissues. Management of diseases of these tissues clinically and technically is often quite challenging due to the highly diverse anatomical nature of the pulpal space, and the ability of root canal procedures to remove the diseased pulp and permit healing of the supporting tissues.
