The soft tissue dental pulp contains vessels and nerves, surrounded by hard and mineral layers of dentin and enamel. In fact, this tissue is located in the central part of the crown and canals and has the task of feeding the pulp cells. When the tooth is attacked by carious bacteria, due to the acid production by these bacteria, the mineral tissue dissolves and a decay cavity is created, which is followed by inflammation in the pulp tissue. If the inflammation continues and the damaged part is not treated, it destroys the pulp tissue completely or it becomes necrotic.
