Root Canal Quick Facts

A root canal (or endodontic treatment as it’s often referred) is a tooth treatment that helps preserves the tooth. It is done when the tooth pulp is decayed or inflamed. Root canals are not painful as the dentist numbs the tooth before the treatment begins. It is normal to start taking antibiotics immediately after you are diagnosed in preparation for your root canal.

Every tooth in a man’s head is more valuable than a diamond”

Miguel de Cervantes

Everyone loves a bright, healthy smile, and everyone hates a painful tooth. It has been said that the teeth are the window to a body’s health.

One of the major causes of tooth pain is decayed or inflamed pulp which can lead to an abscess inside the teeth. The pulp is a soft tissue inside the teeth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called the dentin.
