Root canals can seem intimidating, but our team of dentists at Gold Square Dental aims to simplify the procedure for all our clients.
A tooth consists of two main parts: the crown (the visible portion) and the root, which is protected by your gums and jawbones. Additionally, there are three component layers that make up your tooth: the outer enamel, the middle dentin layer, and the innermost part, the pulp.
When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, decayed, or inflamed, a root canal is necessary to address these issues. It’s crucial to care for the tooth’s pulp because it houses the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues, which are vital for your oral health.
If you are experiencing intense tooth pain, sensitivity to heat/cold in a specific tooth, or have had trauma or a tooth fracture, you may potentially require a root canal. If you have concerns, our dentists can examine the affected tooth and consult on whether a root canal procedure is necessary.
