Root Canal

The root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. It is part of a naturally occurring space within a tooth that consists of the pulp chamber (within the crown of the tooth), the main canal(s), and smaller canal branches that may connect the root canals to each other or to the surface of the root.

The smaller branches, referred to as accessory canals are most frequently found near the root end (apex) but may be encountered anywhere along the root length. There may be one or two main canals within each root. Some teeth have more variable internal anatomy than others. This space is filled with the dental pulp. Dr. Randall Hedrick is trained as a specialist in the treatment of this microscopic area of the tooth.

This chamber is connected to the tip of the root by narrow canal(s); hence, the term "root canal". Human teeth normally have one to four canals, with teeth toward the back of the mouth having more canals. These canals run through the center of the roots like pencil lead through the length of a pencil. The pulp receives nutrition through the blood vessels and nerves carry signals back to the brain to sense temperature and infection.

For a person who feels tooth pain or discomfort, a root canal may be needed and an endodontist (root canal therapy specialist) should be consulted in a timely manner.
