Root Canals/Endodontic Therapy


At the center of every tooth is a hollow area that houses soft tissues, including the nerve, blood vessels and connective tissue.  This hollow area contains a relatively wide space in the coronal potion of the tooth called the pulp chamber.  These canals run through the center of the roots, similar to the way pencil lead runs through a pencil. The pulp receives nutrition through the blood vessels, and sensory nerves carry signals back to the brain.  A tooth can be relieved from pain if there is irreversible damage to the pulp, via root canal treatment.
