About Root Canals
A root canal may be needed when a tooth becomes infected because of a fracture, crack or advanced tooth decay. If left untreated, infection can cause a tooth abscess which affects the roots and nerves. Minor discomfort can lead to extreme pain, swelling and risk of tooth and bone loss.
