Depending on the stage of infection, root canals can be quick and comfortable procedures. Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. This contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues, which help grow the root of your tooth during its development.
Once diagnosed, this procedure involves removing the infected pulp, located within each tooth. Today’s modern treatments are very similar to a routing filling and typically complete in a visit or two, depending on the condition of your tooth. A root canal is relatively painless, and extremely effective, getting you back to smiling, biting, and chewing with ease in no time.
