INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO REQUIRE A ROOT CANAL PROCEDURE DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is a root canal procedure?

The root canals are part of a space inside the tooth that contains neurovascular bundles (each consisting of blood vessels and a nerve) and the dental pulp, which consists of various types of cells that support the tooth. Whereas the part of the space inside the tooth underneath the crown (the part of the tooth that shows outside the gum) is called the pulp chamber, the canal system consists of longer, skinnier chambers that run inside the roots of the tooth, the pointy projections of the tooth that anchor the tooth into the bone. The main root canals are those which continue from the pulp chamber and run lengthwise through the roots, but these main canals also have branches that are smaller and run in various directions; these are called side canals, or accessory canals.
