Root canal therapy is a treatment performed on a tooth that is infected, inflamed, or the tissue inside has died. Often teeth requiring root canal therapy are hurting patients or an infection is visible noticed. The pain often comes in cycles and a regiment of antibiotics can give temporary relief. Dental decay, trauma, a chip or cracked tooth, or repeated dental procedures on the tooth can cause a tooth to need root canal therapy. Teeth that have had root canal treatment done function and feel much like normal teeth but are no longer sensitive to cold as the nerve tissue has been removed.
