Root canals are some of the most common dental procedures, with over 15 million teeth undergoing this treatment each year. Technological advances have made root canals relatively painless, with many patients reporting experiencing little to no pain during the procedure.

Why Is a Root Canal Done?
A root canal is done when tooth decay penetrates to the center of the tooth and has infected the tooth pulp (Psst… if the dentist diagnoses a cavity don’t procrastinate getting the filling. You need to prevent the decay from spreading so you don’t need a root canal). Left untreated, the infection can spread to the jawbone, adjacent teeth, and even the bloodstream.
A root canal may also be needed if a tooth is severely broken.
