What is a root canal?
A root canal is a channel that connects the tooth to the blood supply that flows throughout the body. The innermost layer of a tooth is called the pulp. It contains all the nerves, and transitions into the root canal structure near the tip of the tooth.
Why do root canals hurt?
When a tooth’s pulp is exposed to bacteria, from either injury or decay, more blood may flow to that portion of the tooth. This creates pressure, and may even cause the pulp to die, giving way to unbearable pain.
A root canal procedure is done by:
- Clearing the diseased pulp from the canal
- Cleaning any bacteria that was left behind
- Filling the canal with rubberlike substance
- Sealing the area to prevent further infection
- Possibly placing a crown to give the tooth more stability
