If you are suggested by your Dentist to get a root canal treatment done and you are being apprehensive about it, you need to get your facts right about the whole procedure. 
 
The Root Canal Treatment is similar to getting the regular fillings and can be done in two or three appointments. The time taken to complete the procedure also depends upon the condition of the tooth. 
 
Inside the tooth, there is a soft tissue known as the pulp. The pulp is present under a hard layer called the dentin which is covered with the white Enamel. The connecting tissues, nerves and blood vessels in the pulp help to maintain the health of the teeth leading to the growth of roots and tissues. 
 
When the pulp becomes infectious it becomes necessary to get the right treatment. Postponing the treatment will only aggravate the situation as possibly the infection can spread to the adjacent teeth. 
 
During the treatment, the infected pulp is removed cleaned and disinfected. After that, a rubber-like material called gutta-percha is used to fill and seal the hollow space left by the cleaning infected pulp. After that, a crown is used to restore the tooth that functions propitiously like a natural tooth.
