Root canal therapy is often performed to save a tooth. It is sometimes the only alternative to permanent extractions. Root canal therapy is done to keep a tooth’s structure with the removal of the dental pulp within. The dental pulp is the mass of tissues inside of the tooth that includes the nerves and blood supply that keep the tooth alive. If these tissues have become infected, they can cause patients to have an extreme toothache that may require immediate treatment. Removal is done while patients are comfortable.
