A Root Canal Can Save Your Tooth

A root canal removes bacteria from the infected root, prevents reinfection of the tooth, and saves the tooth itself. During a root canal, the doctor removes the infected pulp around the root. Then the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, finally filled and sealed. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because the tissues surrounding the tooth nourish it.  

You only need your tooth roots to feel sensations like hot and cold and for the tooth to grow in. It can, however, prevent the further spread of infection. Getting a root canal is relatively painless and extremely effective. You will be back to smiling, biting, and chewing with ease in no time.
