Endodontic treatment is not contraindicated with most medical conditions. The only systemic contraindications to endodontic therapy are uncontrolled diabetes or a very recent myocardial infarction (within the past 6 months).

The word endodontic comes from two Greek words meaning “inside” and “tooth.” Endodontics is the science of diagnosing and treating pulpal and periradicular disease. Endodontics is that branch of dentistry concerned with the morphology, physiology, and pathology of the human dental pulp and periradicular tissues. Its study and practice encompass the basic and clinical sciences, including the biology of the normal pulp, and the etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries of the pulp and associated periradicular conditions.*
