What is a Root Canal?

Root canals are common endodontic procedures that can be used to save infected teeth that would normally need to be extracted. When the pulp chamber of your tooth becomes infected, this infection can spread to your tooth roots and hit the nerves that travel to and from your dental pulp using tiny passages in your roots called “canals.” When the infection hits these nerves, the result can be a severe and chronic toothache that is very hard to live with. If the infection is not cleaned out using root canal therapy, the infection may spread to your other teeth, or reach your blood stream and cause other serious health problems.

How is a Root Canal Performed?

  • Your dentist will begin your root canal procedure by cleaning out the infection in your tooth and removing any damaged or infected dental pulp.
  • Once your tooth has been cleaned out and disinfected, your dentist will add special antibiotic medication to prevent the infection from returning.
  • Once your dentist has finished the root canal procedure, the area will be sealed off, and capped with a beautiful, porcelain dental crown to protect and preserve your remaining tooth structure.

Root canals can provide meaningful relief to patients suffering from a serious chronic toothache. After your root canal, you’ll be able to feel comfortable and happy again. A root canal will protect your overall health, and protect your other teeth from infection.
