To understand a root canal, it's helpful to first explain the anatomy of a tooth. A tooth contains several layers. The hard outer layer, called the enamel, the soft inner layer, called the dentin, and beyond that, a chamber of nerves and vessels with canals that extend below the gum line. Sometimes, the inner chamber of the tooth gets infected with bacteria and a sort of rotting occurs that quickly spreads into the roots. If you don’t remove the infection, or this “rotting,” it will cause pressure within the tooth and a lot of pain. If left untreated, the infection can ultimately spread into the gums, and from the gums into your bloodstream, which then travels to your heart and brain. When the bacteria and infection gets into your heart you may suffer a heart attack, and when it gets into your brain you may suffer from a stroke. Not handling the infection of one tooth can eventually lead to death if not treated in a timely manner.
Root canal treatment is the process of removing the infection that gets inside of a tooth. Because of technological advances, the pain is greatly reduced and in many cases, not felt at all.
