Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp tissues from the tooth in the event that it gets infected or inflamed. Removal of the infected or inflamed pulp is the first step in saving the tooth. Debris within the canals is removed by flushing with an anti-bacterial solution. The canals are finally filled or sealed and the tooth restored to full shape and function by either a permanent filling or a crown.
- At the center of all teeth is a hollow area that houses soft tissues, such as the nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue.
- These canals run through the center of the roots, similar to how pencil lead runs through a pencil. The pulp receives nutrition through the blood vessels, and sensory nerves carry signals back to the brain.
- Effective root canal treatment can eliminate long term tooth pain.
