Hearing your dentist say the words “root canal” can be a scary thing, but it doesn’t have to be. Millions of teeth are saved yearly, safely and relatively pain free!
Inside your tooth, beneath the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, is a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help grow the root of your tooth during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues surrounding it. (Source: American Association of Endontists)
