What is a Root Canal?
A root canal is one of the safest, most common dental treatments. In fact, millions of teeth are saved every year by this simple, painless procedure. The inside of the tooth contains a soft material called pulp, as well as a nerve that allows the tooth to feel sensation. If the outside of the tooth becomes damaged to the point where the pulp is exposed, an infection may occur.
To save the structure of the tooth, your dentist in Mishawaka will remove the pulp and clean the interior of the tooth. The only purpose of the nerve is to provide a sensation, so its removal will not affect the normal function of the tooth. The cavity is then sealed with filling to prevent further damage.
