WHAT IS ROOT CANAL THERAPY?
More commonly called a “root canal” for short, root canal therapy is a method of healing a tooth that has been damaged by an infection. Inside each tooth is a “canal” where the soft tooth pulp lives. You can also find the nerve here. When this pulp becomes infected, it can cause severe pain and tooth decay. The purpose of root canal therapy is to remove the decayed parts and stop the infection, thus saving the tooth.
