Root Canal Treatments At Biltmore Dental Center, Phoenix
Like other parts of your body, teeth are living organs. Right in the center of a tooth is the PULP, which is a complex set of nerves and a blood supply. This blood supply is connected to your body’s blood supply via “roots,” just like a tree’s roots. When a tooth has extensive decay, the bacteria in the decay can get into the blood supply of the pulp. When this happens, the bacteria now have a chance to get into your body’s blood supply and the infection will spread into your bones, and if not treated, into your whole body.
