Root Canals

The pulp, which is the living part of the tooth, is made up of nerves and blood vessels. It is contained in the pulp chamber, a space inside the center of the tooth that extends down into the roots. The pulp of a tooth may become infected or die for a number of reasons such as decay, trauma, deep fillings and inflammation.

If decay or trauma causes irreversible pulp disease, a common treatment is endodontic therapy (root canal). Root canal treatment includes thoroughly debriding and removing all of the pulpal remains from the tooth. The resulting clean pulpal space is then filled and sealed.
