Endodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that deals with the complex structures found inside the teeth including the tooth pulp, tissues, nerves and arterioles. Endodontists receive additional dental training to perform various procedures including root canal therapy. Modern methods allow teeth with diseased nerves to be saved instead of removing the entire tooth.
