What is a root canal?

Root canal treatment is procedure that is used to repair and save a tooth that has become infected.

The procedure involves removing the pulp and nerve tissue of a tooth, cleaning the tooth from the inside (the canals of the roots) and sealing the tooth. Without the treatment, the infected tooth may cause an abcess.

Pain (can be severe) Sensitivity to hot/cold/sweet Darkening of the tooth Swollen or tender gums around a tooth
