If you are experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity, then your dentist will help to see if you need a root canal treatment. They can determine this through the use of x-rays and tests.

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is located inside each individual tooth that holds several canals, the pulp chamber, blood vessels, tissue, and nerves. The pulp can get infected by bacteria accessing through decay from the enamel. This is when a root canal treatment is recommended. A root canal treatment helps to remove the pulp and tissue from inside the canal. This treatment will help to stop the spread of infection.

During the treatment, your dentist will provide you with a form of anesthesia in order to avoid any pain or discomfort. This also helps individuals to relax for the dentists to better perform the procedure.

After the Treatment

Your dentist will go through detailed instructions with you after your root canal to ensure a quick healing process. The root canal treatment involves removing the nerves along with the pulp in the tooth; this means you will no longer have feeling in the affected tooth which will eliminate all previous pain you may have felt.
