Why is it called a root canal?

Each root has a canal or tunnel that runs through it which carries the nerve and tiny blood vessels. The full term is root canal therapy which means treatment of the root canal system. The other term you may hear is endodontic treatment or sometimes just “endo” for short. Endodontists are the dentists that specialize in “endo” or root canal therapy.
