Has your dentist told you that you require root canal treatment? If yes, then you are not alone. There are millions of teeth which are treated and saved each year with root canal, or endodontic treatment.
Root canal treatment is the process of removing injured, infected or dead pulp from your tooth. The space inside the hard layers of each tooth is referred to as the root canal system. This system is filled with soft dental pulp which is made up of nerves and blood vessels that help your tooth to grow and develop.
In a fully developed tooth, the tooth can survive without the pulp as the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it. Modern endodontic treatment is very similar to having a routine filling and generally can be completed in one or two appointments, depending on the condition of your tooth and your personal circumstances. One can expect a comfortable experience during and after your appointment.
Decades ago, root canal treatments used to be quite popular. With dental advancements and local anesthetics, most people either experience no pain or little with a root canal today.
