An accessory canal is a canal that is impossible to see on an X-ray, but it can leave a tiny amount of nerve tissue after a root canal is performed. These branches of the main nerve are almost impossible to fill. Oftentimes, the nerve will die, and there is no problem since it is such a small area. There are situations in which a tooth has more roots than it is supposed to.

I got a root canal, and now I’m in pain!
All this time I was in horrible pain and was popping Advil every 4 hours. I ended up with the guy who was recommended via my friend’s dental buddy. I later found out this guy was viewed as an expert even by fellow dentists. He did an amazing job and there was no pain after he did the root canal. I have since had a second root canal (yesterday) and am in no pain whatsoever. My recommendation is to ask around, friends or other dentists if you can. Visit at least 2 specialists, (it’s worth the consultation fee).
