Why Someone Might Need a Root Canal

Inside every tooth, below the enamel and within a layer of a substance called dentin, is some soft tissue called the dental pulp. Among other things, it contains what can be called the “nerve” of the tooth. Due to a cavity or crack in the enamel, it can sometimes develop damage or decay, leading to the mother of all toothaches. Root canal therapy allows Dr. Kazmi to remove this infected tissue, clean the tooth, and rebuild it so a patient can be pain-free and the tooth will look and function like normal for years to come.
