The root canal treatment is the procedure used for repairing and saving a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. The root canal procedure involves the removal of the nerve and pulp and then the inner part of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. If the treatment is not done, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may come up.
