Root canal treatment or endodontics is a routine dental procedure needed when the blood or nerve supply of a tooth (pulp) becomes infected due to tooth decay or any injury.
Decay of the teeth if left untreated, gradually progress and involve the pulp of the tooth giving rise to dental pain. If left untreated the infection may spread through the root canal system leading to an abscess and maybe an extraction. Root canal treatment not only removes the infection from the tooth but also saves the tooth structure.Root canal treatment is basically nothing but just removal of infected soft tissue within the tooth and its replacement by an artificial inert filling material.
A crown (cap) is advised on the root canal treated tooth to protect it and restore it to its full function.
