Endodontics is the dental specialty that deals with dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of a tooth. In terms of Medicare, Endodontics refers to services like root canal treatment.[1][2]

Although Original Medicare does not cover most dental treatments, Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) plans may cover endodontics and other dental services either as part of the plan or as an optional add-on.
