What is a Root Canal?
This is sort of a trick question. Most people refer to root canal therapy (or endodontic therapy) as “a root canal,” but a root canal is actually a physical structure in every one of your teeth. Each of your teeth is filled with dental pulp that extends down into the roots through thin canals. This pulp contains nerves and blood vessels that bring oxygen to your teeth and keep them healthy.
Root canal therapy refers to the dental procedure involving the removal of bacterial from the pulp (nerve) of the tooth. If the decay in the tooth remains untreated it reaches deep in the nerve of the tooth, infects the nerve and a root canal becomes necessary.
When this happens, your tooth is at risk of developing an abscess. An abscess occurs when the infection spreads from the root of the tooth into the tissues of the jaw bone. Abscessed teeth are very painful, and cause swelling. This is typically one of the more critical stages of tooth decay and must be treated sooner rather than later.
An untreated infection in the pulp of a tooth can lead to further decay or further complications such as Dental Abscess. The tooth may become painful and discolored.
