When is a Root Canal Needed?

Animated tooth in need of root canal therapy

Your tooth is surrounded by a hard enamel layer, but at its center there is a bundle of soft tissue, nerves, and blood tissue. This is the dental pulp, and if it becomes infected due to exposure from bacteria (which might happen if the tooth decays or is broken), you’ll begin experiencing some very serious pain. Root canal therapy removes the damaged pulp and disinfects the inside of your tooth to stop the pain. This procedure often ends up saving the tooth from extraction so that you can keep using it normally. Despite what television and other media might have led you to believe, the procedure causes little to no pain; you can walk in for your appointment without fear.
