How Root Canals Actually Work

Models of the inside of a healthy and damaged tooth

Your teeth are actually composed of three distinct layers: enamel on the outside, followed by a layer of dentin, and within that is a small bit of soft tissue called the dental pulp. Among other things, this contains the sensitive nerve of a tooth, and when exposed to bacteria, it can develop an infection that causes quite a bit of pain. Thankfully, root canal therapy is specifically designed to handle this kind of problem.

Our dentists will start by numbing a patient, and then they’ll create a small hole in the tooth so they can remove the infected pulp. They’ll then clean the interior of the tooth before filling it and repairing it further with a dental crown at a follow-up visit. Most patients compare the experience to getting a small filling, which is to say not painful at all!
