Root Canal

Root canal treatment is performed when the inner part called pulp of the tooth gets badly infected or decayed by cavities. If the tooth is left untreated, then it can cause complete loss to the tooth, and saving the tooth is only possible if the infected pulp is removed to prevent any further infection.

Three Counterparts of Teeth

  • Enamel, which is the hard, outer layer of the tooth.
  • Dentine, the core of the tooth which provides the tooth’s shape and supports the enamel. Dentine is not as hard as the enamel but is stronger than bone.
  • Pulp, which as previously stated is the innermost part of the tooth. This is where the nerves and blood vessels are located. The pulp itself lies within the root canal.

Pulp Can Rot Or Die Due To

  • Caries, a particular form of decay, which will travel through from the enamel straight to the pulp if not treated.
  • Severe trauma, which can affect the makeup of the pulp.
  • Gum disease, in which the gum will detach itself from the tooth, allowing a gap where bacteria can be trapped inside the tooth.


  • Any ache on or around the affected tooth, ranging from even the dullest pain to the most severe.
  • A dark spot that will appear on the gum in the area of the infected tooth. This is an indication of a build-up of puss from the root tip.
  • Severe swelling in the area surrounding the affected tooth.
  • Pain while eating food
