What is a Root Canal?

The term root canal defines the cavity in the center of a tooth. It is filled with a soft tissue called pulp where the nerves of the tooth reside.

 

A root canal treatment or procedure is used to restore teeth that are cracked, chipped, badly decayed, experienced trauma, or have become infected. In the procedure, the pulp and nerve are excised after which the canal of the tooth is prepared and sealed.
