How Does a Root Canal Work?


Root canal therapy is used to treat the tooth’s inner nerve, also known as the dental pulp, after it has developed an infection or damage. This can cause the pulp to swell and create a lot of pressure within the tooth, which as you can imagine, isn’t very comfortable! Once the pulp is removed, the interior of the tooth is cleaned, shaped, and filled to prevent further infection. At a follow-up appointment, it can be topped with a crown, and it can be expected to look and function normally for many years to come.
