If you have been told you need a root canal by Dr. Fawcett or have been refereed by your dentist, relax! A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges. This procedure has a 90% success rate. At the center of your tooth is pulp. Pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth.
