A root canal is a dental procedure that involves treating the center of a tooth’s root. It is commonly used to alleviate pain caused by an infected or abscessed tooth.

The pulp is a soft inner core found in our teeth that plays a vital role in nourishing the tooth during its development. The pulp of a tooth is comprised of nerves and blood vessels. However, once a tooth has fully developed, it can continue to function without the presence of pulp. The pulp of a tooth can become infected for various reasons, such as tooth decay, an abscess, a cracked tooth, or injury. An infected tooth can cause significant pain.

At Sindledecker Dentistry, our root canal procedure involves saving the tooth by removing the pulp and filling the inside, including the root canals, with a filler material. Afterward, we restore the top of the tooth to ensure it is healthy, functional, and has a natural appearance.
