Root Canal

A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp
(soft area within root canal) are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become
infected and abscesses may form.

A temporary filling is then put on top of the canal.  A crown or permanent filling will be put in place after there has been no sign of infection.
