Your teeth contain several layers:
Each pulp chamber branches off, forming canals that lead toward the tooth root tip. These infamous root canals provide a means for the tooth to absorb what it needs from the blood and get rid of toxins or other unnecessary materials via the blood stream.
Stressors on your teeth can make the canal susceptible to bacterial infection, which can kill the pulp, stimulate increased blood flow, and create pressure within the tooth such as:
This can cause severe tooth pain and may initiate bone degeneration, tooth loss, and even more acute pain.

NO! With today’s advanced analgesics and technology, the entire process can be so comfortable that many patients doze off.
Oftentimes, root canal therapy can be completed in a single appointment.
We simply clean out the diseased canal, fill it with a biologically inert substance, seal it from further infection, and you’re on your way. While some patients experience post-procedural soreness or slight tissue inflammation, these are controllable with over-the-counter analgesics. Follow-up care involves thorough home hygiene and regular dental visits for cleanings and check-ups.
