Root canal therapy or treatment is the most common procedure in all endodontic treatments. An endodontist performs root canal treatment to treat problems related to the soft inner pulp of a tooth.
Why do I need a root canal treatment?
Root canal treatment is required when nerve tissue inside the teeth degenerates. If the root canal treatment is not performed then the infection of the tooth pulp can cause damage to the jawbone. You will need a root canal treatment to save your tooth and to ensure that the tissue around the root of the tooth remains healthy and free from inflammation.
