Root Canal Therapy (or more commonly referred to as "getting a root canal") is a treatment that involves removing the infection that lies deep inside the tooth where the tooth's nerves and tissue are. Once the infection is removed from the deep tooth (pulp) area, it is filled and resealed. This procedure eliminates the source of the infection and should protect the tooth from future contamination of bacteria.
Just a few reasons patients with deep tooth infections should get a root canal are:
- To alleviate the pain
- To prevent further spread of bacteria that can affect your teeth, gums, and jaws and possibly other areas of the body
- Treatment can save the tooth
