A root canal is a common procedure to treat a damaged or infected tooth. Typically, a root canal is needed when the root of a tooth, or the tissue inside that you can’t see, gets infected and causes great pain.
During a root canal and crown process, the dentist makes an opening to get to the tissue and remove the damaged area. Then the inside of the tooth is cleaned out and filled back in with a crown to stop any more infection from entering the root.
