The aim of root canal treatment (also called endodontic treatment) or root filling is performed to save a tooth when the nerve in the middle of it has become infected or is causing pain.
A root canal can save your tooth
A tooth can die for a number of reasons:
A root canal enables your tooth to be saved by replacing the irritated nerve tissue in the root of the tooth with a filling.
A full evaluation will be necessary to determine the proper course of treatment, but a few common symptoms point to the need for root canal treatment.
A root canal is done over a few visits and is a ‘painless’ procedure contrary to popular belief.
