What is Root Canal Treatment?
Root canal (endodontic) treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the tooth’s root canal, becomes inflamed or infected with decay. If pulp inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause pain and/or lead to an abscess.
What Causes Inflammation or Infection?
Inflammation can be caused by several factors:
- Deep Decay
- Repeated Dental Procedures on a Tooth
- Fracture in the Tooth
Injury to a tooth may cause pulp damage even if the tooth has no visible chips or cracks.
