Endodontics is the dental branch that deals mainly with the morphology, physiology and pathology of the dental pulp, as well as the tissues surrounding the root. Knowledge of dental pulp is essential, since it contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that feeds the tooth during its formation. To address octopus-periapical pathologies, the most common treatments are endodontic because they allow the patient’s own teeth to be kept with full functionality.

Specialists in this area of CUO are concerned with preventing or treating all problems of octopus-periapical origin with the ultimate aim of saving the tooth and keeping it healthy as long as possible. There are a broad range of treatments, such as non-surgical retreatment, apical surgeries, intentional reimplants, and autotransplants. They are also equipped to successfully manage different kinds of dental injuries.
