Endontology deals with diseases inside the tooth.
Long-term preservation of the tooth as a functioning chewing unit after the treatment inside the tooth (root-canal treatment).
In the last 12 years, opportunities for carrying out a root-canal treatment have rapidly developed due to technical innovations:
* Optical devices like dental loupes, microscope and endoscope
* Rotating, highly flexible, microprocessor-based titanium files
Thus, endodontic treatments are now possible in cases in which previously only the surgical removal of the tooth would remain.
