What is a root canal?

root canal san diegoThe root canal is part of the underlying structure of the tooth. Underneath the enamel of the tooth is the dentin and at the center is the soft pulp. The soft pulp carries the nerves and blood vessels of the tooth. This pulp extends down each root (up to four) through a narrow passage. The area of the root that contains the pulp is known as the root canal.
