What is a root canal?

Root Canal Therapy is a process used to remove decayed dental pulp (also known as the root). Once the decay is removed and cleaned, the remaining healthy root is left to support the tooth. A crown is then placed to prevent bacteria from entering the tooth.

Why would you need a root canal?

A root canal is needed with the pulp or nerve of a tooth becomes infected or decayed. The procedure itself involves removing both the pulp and/or the nerve from the tooth, cleaning the infection until completely removed, and then filling or replacing the tooth depending on the extent of damage to the tooth. This is a notoriously painful treatment, but the specialists at Dental Bliss have created an environment and procedure that removes the pain and anxiety of traditional root canal treatments.
