What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a common procedure that can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges. A root canal consists of cleaning and shaping of the inner canals of the tooth by eliminating the infected or inflamed pulp (nerve and blood vessels) of the tooth. Once the pulp is removed, the root canal will be filled and sealed. Finally, a crown or other form of restoration will be placed on the tooth to protect and restore it to full function.
When is a Root Canal Necessary?
A root canal is necessary when the soft tissue within the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. Infection or inflammation can be caused due to injury of the tooth including, deep decay, numerous dental procedures to the tooth, or a crack in the tooth. Symptoms include, visible swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain of the tooth and gums.
