Endodontics involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases or injuries that impact the pulp chamber, which contains the nerves of your teeth. Endodontic problems can be caused by severe decay or injury causing an abscess or infection in the tissue below the tooth, or even in the jawbone. Infections can be caused by decay, cracks, chips, or trauma to the tooth. If the dental pulp becomes infected, it causes a toothache.
Signs of Endodontic Disease or Trauma
The most common symptoms of endodontic disease are:
- A toothache, especially pain that does not seem to have any other cause
- Sensitivity to hot or cold foods or liquids
- Sensitivity to touch or pressure while biting or chewing
- Tenderness or swelling of the face, gums or lymph nodes
- Tooth discoloration

- Acute recurring or continuous pain
- Blocked root tips

- Removal of debris from previous root canal therapy that might damage the root tips if not removed
