What Exactly Is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a common dental procedure that’s used to treat an abscessed tooth. During the procedure, your dentist will remove infected or inflamed tissue from the interior of a tooth. This tissue, referred to as the pulp, contains nerves and blood vessels that extend to the tips of the tooth roots. A tooth becomes abscessed when the pulp becomes infected. By removing this damaged tissue, a root canal relieves pain, restores the tooth’s health and helps prevent further damage.
