Root Canal Treatment
What exactly is a Root Canal?
Root canal treatments typically affect the root tip or nerve of the tooth and the structures called the pulp chamber, pulp, and root canal. A root canal is the removal of diseased or damaged pulp inside the tooth, the cleaning, disinfection and reshaping of the inner canals beneath the tooth, and preparation of the tooth for later placement of a filling, and in most cases, an artificial crown made of porcelain or gold. The procedure enables you to keep most of your original tooth
Underneath each tooth’s outer enamel and the inner part, dentin, is an area of soft tissue called the pulp. This pulp carries the tooth’s nerves, veins, and arteries. The Root canals are tiny, thin passageways that branch off from the top pulp chamber and extend through the root to its tip. A tooth can have multiple root canals.
Sometimes, the pulp inside the tooth becomes infected by bacteria or a disease, or damaged by a traumatic injury to the tooth. An infected and untreated root canal can allow bacteria to cause a severe infection in the mouth that can spread to other parts of the body. In addition to staving off potentially harmful infections, root canal treatment can generally save your damaged tooth without having to pull or replace the entire tooth.
