What is a root canal and what does it do for your oral health?
A root canal is a procedure that is performed on a tooth that has become infected or damaged. The purpose of the procedure is to remove the damaged or infected tissue from the tooth, and to clean and seal the area to prevent further damage. Root canals are usually necessary when the nerve of a tooth becomes inflamed or infected.
Root Canals are vital for oral health because they allow us to save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted. In addition, root canals can help to prevent further damage to the surrounding teeth. The infection of the damage has a chance to cause damage to the surrounding teeth if nothing is done.
The signs that you may need a root canal.
It is important that you pay attention to your oral health and see a dentist if you experience any of the following:
- Severe toothache pain that radiates to your jaw, neck or ear

There a few; but not all, reasons that a root canal or similar procedure might need to done on your teeth
How a root canal is performed.
A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
If you have a root canal, you will need to have a crown (cap) placed on the tooth to protect and strengthen it.
How to care for your teeth after a root canal has been performed.
It is important to take good care of your teeth and gums after a root canal has been performed. Brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and see your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. It would also be beneficial to reduce the amount of sugary foods and drinks that you consume.
