When a tooth becomes badly decayed or infected, a root canal is performed to save it.
Root canal therapy, also known as Endodontic Treatment, is necessary when the pulp of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on your tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth.
With proper care, an Endodontically treated tooth will function normally for years to come.
