What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a procedure in which a dentist removes an infected tooth pulp, the bundle of tissues and blood vessels at the center of your teeth. Root canals have advanced along with dental technology, and they can now be completed in one or two appointments, depending on your condition.

When is a Root Canal Necessary?

The outermost layer of your tooth is the enamel, which encases a hard layer called dentin. Beneath the enamel and dentin, we find the dental pulp. When a tooth is cracked, or a cavity is advanced enough to reach the pulp, it can lead to an infection, sensitivity, and a substantial amount of pain. Therefore, a root canal is necessary to remove the infected pulp and save the tooth altogether.

How Do I Know if I Need a Root Canal?

Ultimately, only your dentist can make this call. However, there are some symptoms to look out for that may signal you have a tooth infection which might call for a root canal:
