The words “Root Canal,” send most patients bolting for the door, but to be fair, root canals have gotten a bad reputation in large part due to misunderstanding. Root canal infection occurs when tooth decay causing bacteria reach the inner, pulp, layer of teeth. Root canal treatments are procedures that involve the pulp of the tooth, and the dental specialty, endodontics, was created to provide these necessary treatments. The procedure traditionally referred to as a “root canal” consists of the removal of infected pulp, refilling of the tooth with biocompatible material, and the placement of a dental crown to provide additional stability and protection to the treated tooth. This blog provides facts regarding some of the common misconceptions about root canal infection and treatments.
