Also known as Endodontic treatment, this is a treatment the dentist can provide to save a tooth rather than extract it, in situations where the inside of the tooth is no longer healthy. Our teeth are living structures - they are hollow in the middle.Dental Treatments - Root Canal Treatment

This "hollow" is called the root canal. When teeth are healthy, there are nerve tissue and blood vessels within the root canal. But when the nerve and blood vessels become unhealthy - most commonly because of decay or trauma, then this tissue becomes a breeding ground for bacteria.

It's the problems these bacteria cause that leads to the tooth needing root canal treatment.
