Root canals are most commonly performed when decay has spread deep into the tooth. The procedure involves removing the nerve and decayed tissue from the affected tooth. Then the clean canal is filled with a filler and the tooth is ready for restoration. Root canal treatment can be used to resolve many different types of nerve-related tooth ailments. They also help prevent dangerous infections from occurring.
