A root canal will relieve your pain and save your tooth from decay.
A root canal is a procedure that we provide that is quick and comfortable. A root canal will relieve your pain and save your tooth from decay. There is no need to worry when your dentist prescribes a root canal to treat a tooth. Many patients receive this treatment and there are always great results.
On the inside of your tooth, beneath the white layer of enamel and hard dentin, is the pulp. The pulp is a soft tissue that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue that helps your tooth grow during development. When the pulp becomes inflamed or infected due to deep decay, repeated dental procedures, faulty crowns, or a cracked tooth it can lead to pain and damage if left untreated.
A root canal procedure removes the inflamed or infected pulp from the inside of the tooth. The inside is cleaned and disinfected, then filled with a rubber-like sealant called gutta-percha. The tooth is then restored with a filling or crown that will protect your tooth from further damage. After this procedure you tooth will function like a normal tooth and there will be no more pain.
