Root Canals procedures are undertaken to remove the infected pulp from the inside of the tooth root when there is no other alternative way to treat the infection or fix the damage. The spreading of the decay usually causes the infection to the pulp, or it can also incur damage from trauma or extensive dental work performed on the tooth. The dentists carry out a root canal procedure to try and save an adult tooth that can still function without pulp.
