When a tooth is beyond repair or dead, a root canal removes the infected pulp from inside the tooth to treat damage and prevent decay from spreading. A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth and also prevent the infections from spreading to the other teeth.
Deep decay if not treated, generally progresses in destroying a vital portion of teeth before it reaches the pulp of the tooth. The pulp of the tooth is where the nerves & blood vessels of the tooth are present. When the decay reaches the pulp, it leads to the common dental pain, which gets triggered on chewing and on lying down. At this stage one and only way to save the tooth is to perform a root canal treatment.
Root canal is a completely pain free procedure and is done under local anesthesia. It involves cleaning out the infected pulp, disinfecting the root canal space thoroughly and filling them with an inert, radio opaque material, which remains in the tooth and prevents further infections from occurring. A root canal treated tooth needs to be protected with a crown or cap for reinforcing its strength.
