Root Canal

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save
a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During
a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed
and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without
treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become
infected and abscesses may form.
Root canal  is the term used to describe the natural cavity
within the center of the tooth. The pulp or pulp chamber is
the soft area within the root canal. The tooth nerve lies
within the root canal
A tooth nerve is not vitally important to a tooth's health and function after the tooth has
emerged through the gums. Its only function is sensory — to provide the sensation of hot or cold.
The presence or absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of the tooth.

Why Does Tooth Pulp Need to Be Removed?

When a tooth  nerve tissue or pulp is damaged, it breaks down and bacteria begin to multiply
within the pulp chamber. The bacteria and other decayed debris can cause an infection
or abscessed tooth. An abscess is a pus-filled pocket that forms at the end of the roots of the
tooth. An abscess occurs when the infection spreads all the way past the ends of the roots of the
tooth. In addition to an abscess, an infection in the root canal of a tooth can cause:

 Swelling that may spread to other areas of the face, neck, or head
 Bone loss around the tip of the root
 Drainage problems extending outward from the root. A hole can occur through the side of
the tooth with drainage into the gums or through the cheek with drainage
