The very idea of a root canal can be intimidating. This oral surgery process is required when a tooth becomes heavily decayed and the decay has reached the root of the tooth. The affected tooth is often the cause of pain in the mouth.
During the root canal, the tooth is examined thoroughly to see how deep and wide the cavity is. Once the damage to the tooth has been assessed, then the decay must be removed completely. This includes the infected soft tissue of the tooth, which left untreated can create a very painful and harmful abscess. The pulp is then replaced with a rubber-like substance called gutta-percha. The root canal is then covered with dental filling or a dental crown to restore the tooth to its original size and strength.
