Root canal therapy is a classic and often essential method of salvaging a tooth that has experienced advanced decay. If decay has spread to the tooth pulp (the inner chamber containing nerves, blood vessels, and other tissue) and extended to the tiny inner portion of the tooth roots, a root canal procedure can remove the tooth pulp and clean deep within the roots, leaving a healthy outer tooth structure. Next, the tooth’s inner chamber is filled with a rubber-like material, and the access point is sealed. Finally, you are left with a healthy-looking tooth that can help you chew comfortably and enjoy a balanced bite.
