What is a root canal?

A root canal treats the nerve inside your tooth when it becomes inflamed or irritated due to trauma or decay.  If you do not get the tooth treated, the infection will cause an abscess, leading to swelling of the face and neck and bone loss around the tooth’s roots.

Why you should get it?

Are you experiencing extreme tooth pain? This is a sign that you have a tooth infection, and leaving this infection untreated is dangerous because the infection will spread to your other teeth and the rest of your body.

Do root canals hurt?

How your dentist will do the root canal

The dentist numbs your affected tooth. Once your tooth is numb, the dentist makes a small opening in the tooth crown to access the infected interior. The dentist removes the infection inside the tooth using special instruments and reshapes the interior of the tooth.

Once the dentist removes the infection in your tooth and reshapes the interior, the tooth canals are filled with a biocompatible material called gutta-percha. Your dentist closes the access opening they made using a build-up material. The dentist will make a dental crown to finalize the treatment for your tooth.
