Root Canals 101: The Basics

The root canal is the space inside a tooth that contains the dental pulp, which is the living tissue of the tooth. When the pulp becomes damaged or diseased, root canal treatment may be necessary to save your tooth from extraction.

During this procedure, your dentist uses a drill to access the root canals of the tooth and extract the diseased pulp. The tooth is cleaned out and sealed off and capped with a crown. You can learn more about this dental treatment by watching this video.

Don’t let tooth pain disrupt your life—visit Dr. Charles M. Marks, D.D.S. and Dental Associates for comfortable, professional treatment of dental problems. Our dental practice focuses on creating and maintaining healthy, beautiful smiles for children, teens, and adults.
