What is a Root Canal?
Receiving a root canal refers to the procedure to preserve a dead tooth. By the time a root canal is needed, it is too late to save a dead tooth because the root of the tooth has already been infected.
Millions of patients go to see dentists regarding an endodontics treatment, a treatment for the inside of the tooth. Medically, a root canal is one of several treatments that are used to repair or save a tooth that has become badly deteriorated and even infected. Root canals are performed when nerve tissue inside of the tooth or dental pulp (a soft area at the core of the tooth) is damaged. The damaged tissue or pulp allows for the propagation of bacteria that causes infection, or an abscess. The root canal procedure removes both the nerve tissue, as well as the pulp, while simultaneously cleaning and sealing the inner parts of the tooth.
