A root canal, also known as endodontic therapy, is a treatment designed to save a tooth that has nerve damage due to excessive decay or from a traumatic-related blow to the tooth. Because the symptoms mimic those of other conditions, you may not realize that your tooth’s nerve is damaged and in need of removal. We recommend viewing our slideshare for a guide to root canals. It may help you recognize the signs that you need the procedure and also help you know what to expect during treatment.
