A root canal is a procedure that is done in a tooth when the pulp around the tooth becomes infected. Each tooth comprises enamel covering the surface and dentin underneath. Inside the dentin is the pulp, which consists of soft tissue, the dental nerve, and the blood supply to the tooth.
When the pulp is infected, a root canal procedure can be done to extract the pulp and eliminate the infection. The tooth is sealed internally, and though the tooth is now dead, the supporting structures to the tooth are still viable. The tooth can thus stay in the mouth as long as it is properly restored after the root canal procedure.
