Have you been told that you require root canal therapy? It’s important to understand what root canal therapy involves so you don’t feel any unnecessary illness when you come to 7 Oaks Laser Dental Centre in Abbotsford for the actual procedure.
What is a Root Canal?

The Root Canal is the name for the space within the root of the tooth, it is a hollow area that contains soft tissues (the pulp and nerves). The number of these hollow canals (one to four) in a tooth depend on the type of tooth and the pulp nourishes and hydrates the tooth.

Why do you need Root Canal Therapy?

However, if your dental pulp is exposed, through a cavity or fracture, or becomes infected (abscessed) for any reason, it will likely require root canal therapy to allow you to actually keep the tooth instead of extracting it. These days, root canal therapy is relatively pain-free and can be done in as little as one appointment.
