A root canal is where the nerve of the tooth is removed. The root of the tooth remains, but the nerve that gives that tooth feeling, the hot and cold feeling, it's removed. It takes out the pain when somebody eats or drinks something that's hot or cold and it causes them a sharp shooting pain. It's got a bad reputation. It probably was deserved at one point in time, but technology has advanced to the point where it's easy. It used to be a long process and multiple visits and long hours in the dental chair. Now it's usually a single visit and over in an hour or two.
