A root canal is a procedure that is done to save a tooth that is badly damaged or infected. The pulp, or living part of the tooth, is made up of nerves and blood vessels. It is contained in the pulp chamber, a space inside the center of the tooth, which holds the pulp and extends into roots. It becomes infected or dies if decay infects the pulp. This infection can be the result of an injury, a deep filling that is close to the pulp chamber, or a tooth fracture. During a root canal procedure, Dr. Adel will remove the nerve and pulp from the “canal” inside of the root, which is then cleaned, filled, and sealed.
