What is endodontics?
Endo- internal. [Greek endon ‘within’]
odonto- relating to tooth. [Greek odont ‘tooth’]
-logy (ology) denoting a subject of study [Greek logia]

– Oxford English Dictionary, 2004

Endodontics is the branch of dentistry that is concerned with the management of the hollow space inside the tooth, commonly known as the ‘root canal’. This space contains the nerves and blood supply of the tooth, called the ‘dental pulp’, which helps to nourish a healthy tooth. The dental pulp also helps to protect a diseased tooth.

Endodontology is the study of the pulp in health and disease. It concerns all aspects of dentistry that may directly or indirectly affect the pulp.
