The aim of root canal treatment is not to put you in immense pain. Instead, the root canal treatment is to save the tooth that is severely damaged or decayed. Modern dental techniques have helped root canal treatment evolve into a relatively relaxed procedure that often need, not more than one or two visits to the dentist or endodontist.

WHEN IS ROOT CANAL TREATMENT REQUIRED?

Generally, root canal treatment is required when the infection to the tooth is spread deep into the root of the tooth. Dental pulp, the central part of a tooth can get infected from bacteria due to injury or due to a severe untreated cavity. Without prior treatment, the infection can spread and cause severe damage to the tooth in such a way that it needs to be removed due to infection.
