What Is a Root Canal?
To understand what is done during a root canal treatment, it’s important to know what the structure of your tooth looks like. The hard, outermost layer is called the enamel. The second layer of a tooth is the dentin. Inside of the dentin, you’ll find the pulp, which is where the blood vessels and nerves are located.
When an infection goes deeply into the tooth and affects the pulp, you’ll start to feel pain, since that is where the nerves are located. If you would like to save your tooth from being extracted, you may be a candidate for a root canal treatment.
What to Expect When Getting a Root Canal
During your root canal procedure, we’ll administer anaesthesia to make sure that you are completely comfortable. Once you agree that you are ready to begin, we’ll clean out the infection from the tooth. With the bacteria removed, we can fill in the area of the tooth to make sure that they can’t reenter and cause a second infection. Finally, you’ll receive a dental crown on top of the weakened tooth to ensure that you can enjoy the full function of your tooth with no concerns about its stability.
