When we perform root canals, we take the time to make you feel comfortable.
Your teeth are made up of several layers, and those layers connect through your gums and into your jaw with roots. The root of the tooth is surrounded by pulp tissue and supporting ligaments that hold it in place and provide stability. The pulp tissue contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues and is particularly important during the development stage for teeth because it creates the hard tissues that surround them. After a tooth becomes fully mature, it can survive without the pulp because it receives nourishment from the other tissues that surround it.
If the canal that surrounds a tooth’s root becomes infected, it is important to remove the infection to save the tooth and prevent it from spreading. A root canal is the procedure that removes the infected pulp from around the tooth. Root canals allow patients to keep their natural teeth as an alternative to extraction.
