Root canals don’t cause pain; they relieve it! Root canals are necessary when a tooth’s pulp, which includes blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue, become inflamed or infected. This results in tooth pain and eventual decay. Instead of removing a badly damaged or infected tooth, a root canal may be an option to save it. This pain-free procedure involves removing the damaged tissue, cleaning, sterilizing, filling and sealing the root, in order to save the tooth.
