Root Canal Treatments

The structure of a tooth broadly consists of two parts, the crown, and the root. The crown is that part of the tooth which we can see in our mouth and the root is that part of the tooth which we cannot see and is deep inside the jawbone, holding the tooth firmly in place.

Structurally the upper layer of the tooth is called the enamel, the second layer the dentin and the third layer is the soft tissue in the core which consists of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue, and is called the pulp.
