What Is A Root Canal?

Also known as root canal treatment or endodontic therapy, a root canal is the name of the common dental procedure. Our team performs root canals to clean out the decay in your tooth’s pulp and root and flush out any infected material. Without treatment, the infection can worsen to the point that you eventually lose your tooth. Root canals are performed to save teeth and maintain healthy smiles.

Your teeth consist of three layers:

  • An enamel layer on the outside
  • A second layer of dentin inside
  • A soft core in the center, called a pulp chamber
The pulp chamber extends into the root in your jawbone. This soft, sensitive core contains the dental pulp, which consists of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue of your tooth. When bacteria or decay gets into the pulp chamber, the pulp can become inflamed or infected or even die. A root canal is needed to clean out the decay.

Do I Need A Root Canal?

The need for a root canal can present in a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Severe pain when chewing or biting
  • Abscesses on the gums
  • Prolonged sensitivity to temperature or pressure
  • Swollen, puffy, or tender gums
  • Drainage
  • Darkening or discoloration of the tooth or gums
  • Swelling in the face or jaw
