Root canal and endodontic treatment

When a tooth becomes infected, due to a cavity or a big filing, the dentist will propose a root canal to devitalize it by removing infected nervous tissue.

If left untreated, the inflamed or infected nerve could cause pain or even an abscessed tooth.

A root canal allows keeping the tooth, rather than extracting it.

Warnings and Recommendations

Teeth that have undergone a root canal are not protected from cavities. Also, since they are no longer living, they are more fragile and subject to breaks. Therefore, dentists may recommend the installation of a crown to protect this type of tooth.
