What is a root canal?
A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged nerve of the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting it, and then filling and sealing it. In some cases a crown is needed for the tooth. The most common causes for the need for a root canal treatment are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, repeated dental treatment to the tooth, or trauma.
