What is Root Canal Therapy

Pulp is located in the center of the tooth and canals (root canals) inside the root area of each tooth. Pulp is defined by connective tissue, nerves and blood vessel. When the tooth emerges through the gum it is nourished by pulp then once matured the pulp can be safely removed. Each tooth is actually nourished by a blood supply in the gum.

Endodontic treatment is removing the pulp; commonly referred to as root canal treatment or root canal therapy. The gentle dentists at Always Smiles Dental Surgery have done many root canal therapies and are well experienced in this area.
