What is a root canal?

A root canal (or endodontic treatment), or more properly defined as nerve injury treatment, is indicated when the nerve of the tooth has been damaged due to trauma to the tooth, broken tooth or filling, and/or pain with the tooth.  The root canal treatment allows the tooth return to normal healthy pain-free condition.
