A little anatomy

The term root channel describes the natural cavity in the center of the tooth. The pulp, also called pulp chamber, is the soft zone of the root canal. This is where the nerve of the tooth can be found.

The role of the nerve

The only function of a tooth's nerve once it has emerged through the gums is sensory. In other words, it is not critically important to a tooth's health and function. Removing the nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of tooth.

If the pulp is damaged, it breaks down and the bacteria begin to multiply in the pulp chamber. Bacteria can cause an infection or an abscess tooth. An infection in the root canal can also cause

Swelling of the face, neck or head

Bone loss around the tip of the root

Drainage problems extending outwardly from the root
