Endodontics

Endodontics - inside (endo) the tooth (dontia). The dental pulp is the tissue (composed of nerves, blood vessels, and other tissues) contained within the tooth. It functions in the development of the tooth (the crown and roots) and it continues to provide nourishment, and sensory response throughout life. The specialty of Endodontics is devoted to the biology, physiology, pathology and treatment of the dental pulp.

Implantology

A natural tooth has two main components: The Crown and the root. The crown is the visible part of the tooth and the root is located below the gumline, in the bone of the jaw. Implantology is the branch of dentistry dedicated to dental implants. The dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is inserted into the jawbone (either the maxilla or the mandible). It often takes the form of a screw that is composed of titanium or titanium alloy.
