A root canal becomes necessary when the root of a tooth becomes infected. The dentist removes the infected “pulp” from the root, preventing an abscess and allowing you to keep your tooth. Thankfully, advances in technology mean that root canals are no longer the painful, drawn-out experience they used to be.
What to Expect
Your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to ensure that you feel no pain during the procedure. They will then make a small hole in the tooth and clean the root with a very fine instrument. The hole will be filled with a temporary filling and possibly followed by a crown, depending on the condition of the tooth.
