What is root canal therapy? Root canal therapy treats problems related to the soft inner pulp of a tooth. It is required when nerve tissue inside the teeth degenerates. Without root canal treatment, the infection in the tooth pulp can results in an abscess, which in turn can cause damage to the jawbone. You need a root canal to save your tooth and to ensure that the tissue around the root of the tooth remains healthy and free from inflammation.
Why do you need root canals? The following are reasons that your tooth may need a root canal: deep decay, big fillings, trauma to the tooth, a chipped tooth or even repeated dental work.
