Root canal treatment, also called endodontic treatment, involves relieving tooth pain by removing the nerve tissue located in the center of the tooth and root. It is necessary when the pulp of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on your tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth. This is not a surgical procedure and no gum tissue is affected. Access to the tooth is obtained by drilling through the biting surface of the tooth or dental restoration to expose the nerve. Once a root canal is finished, it is essential to have the final restoration, usually crown, completed promptly to maintain the integrity of the remaining tooth structure.
