A Root Canal is where the tooth’s nerve and pulp are contained. If a tooth is damaged or infected, the nerve can be impacted and must be removed. To do this, your dentist will take a very fine file to enter the canal and remove the nerve and pulp. This is known as “root canal therapy” and is used to save teeth that might otherwise have to be extracted. In most instances, a crown is placed on the tooth after this procedure to provide strength and help avoid future problems.
