What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a therapy of the pulp of the tooth that is infected, inflamed, or dead. The dental pulp is a soft material in the center of your tooth that consists of blood vessels, connective tissue, and the nerve. The center of your tooth (pulp chamber) is a hollow part which contains the pulp, and it continues down canals that extend through the roots of your teeth and into the surrounding bone.
