Root canal is needed when nerve of the tooth is damaged by injury of and infected by bacterial decay. This procedure helps to save the tooth and help restore it to natural function. First step of this procedure is numbing the area requiring treatment followed by creating an opening to access the root. Infected tissue will be removed using files and canal will be disinfected. Next, the root is filled with a special sealing and filling material for root canal. Opening of the tooth is also filled and sealed with temporary filling material. Tooth will most often also require a cap or crown followed by root canal treatment to help protect the tooth from breaking and help restore tooth to natural function.
