Root canal refers to the hollow space within the root of the tooth that’s filled with soft tissue and nerves (also called pulp).

You know you are supposed to see our dentist twice a year, but for some people the fear overrides the need for important dental work. You know avoiding the dentist makes most oral health issues even worse. There are some people who even show up on the day of their appointment but are so worked up with fear and anxiety that they tense up and make even a simple procedure difficult for themselves and their dentist.
