Your teeth are actually made of multiple layers, and at the center of each one is a small amount of soft tissue called the dental pulp. This is actually the “nerve” of the tooth, and if it’s exposed to bacteria and becomes infected, this can lead to quite a bit of pain.
Instead of just extracting a tooth with this kind of problem like dentists would have done in the past, Dr. Aten or Dr. Saini can simply remove the pulp, clean the tooth, and fill it. Modern-day anesthetics and sedation make this procedure very comfortable despite its reputation, and afterward, root canal treated teeth can be trusted to look and function like normal for many years to come.
