Root canals have a reputation for being painful, but actually, most patients experience significant pain relief following root canal therapy. The procedure is necessary when tooth decay or damage reaches the innermost layer of the tooth – the pulp. The entire nerve system of the tooth is housed within the pulp, so this decay and damage has direct access to the nerves triggering a painful toothache. A root canal removes the entire damaged pulp and nerve system alleviating pain instantly.
