Every single tooth is actually composed of three distinct layers: the enamel, which is followed by the dentin (a hard yellow substance), and the dental pulp that lies inside both. The dental pulp is a small bit of soft tissue that includes a number of blood vessels, connective tissues, and most importantly, the delicate nerve of a tooth. If either decay or trauma has a chance to damage the pulp, it can cause quite a toothache—the kind that can really ruin your day! To relieve this kind of pain, the team at Green Mountain Dental can provide root canal therapy.
For this, after thoroughly numbing your tooth, your dentist will simply access the damaged tissue, remove it, clean and disinfect the tooth, and then top it with a dental crown to fully restore it. Thanks to our years of experience and sedation options, this procedure is virtually painless, so now there’s no reason to fear a root canal.
