When a tooth becomes irritated or infected due to cavities, trauma or decay, root canal therapy is necessary. The only alternative to root canal therapy is an extraction.
If left untreated, the infection can cause an abscess, which can lead to swelling of the face and neck and bone loss around the roots of teeth.
During a root canal the nerve and pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned, shaped and sealed.
A tooth that has undergone root canal therapy is more brittle and must continue with a post & core and crown to give the tooth strength.
