Your teeth have a core of blood vessels and nerves at their centre; this is known as the pulp. The number of root canals a tooth has varies. Generally your back teeth have 2-3 canals, whereas your front teeth often have just one canal.
Root canal treatment is required when your tooth’s pulp becomes damaged. The blood vessels die, this results in a tooth which is ‘dead’. Teeth that are ‘dead’ are more likely to get infected because they are no longer protected by your immune system.
