What Is a Root Canal?
At the center of your tooth is soft, sensitive tissue called the tooth pulp. The pulp is usually pretty safe beneath layers of enamel and dentin. However, dental trauma like cracks, chips, and deep tooth decay can all cause an infection. This in turn will cause the patient severe pain known as a dental abscess. If left untreated, the tooth will eventually require extraction. A root canal removes the infected pulp, thoroughly cleans the area, and seals it to prevent future infection.
