What is a root canal?
It consists of an intervention that is done to try to preserve a tooth that otherwise would have to be extracted. It consists in the elimination of the pulp tissue (“nerve”), which is inside the dental roots, to maintain the tooth and its masticatory function.
How it is performed?
Almost always local anesthesia is needed so you should warn if you have any allergy or indication for administration. During the treatment several radiographs will be made.
