Commons Questions about Root Canals

Why do I need a root canal?

A tooth contains pulp, which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth. Pulp runs like a thread down through the root of the tooth.

When pulp is infected or diseased, the pulp tissue dies. When infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result. Your tooth can get infected, and you can lose it. Infection could also spread to and injure your jawbones.

A root canal can save your tooth and prevent other painful—and costly—problems.

Does a root canal hurt?

A root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort.

For patient comfort, the dentist will numb your tooth first so you’re comfortable during treatment.

How long does a root canal take?

Treatment is usually completed in one visit but may take up to three visits.

What happens during a root canal?

During treatment, the dentist carefully removes the diseased pulp from your tooth. Then, the pulp chamber and root canals of the tooth are cleaned and sealed. After that, the dentist places a crown over the tooth to make it stronger.
