Root canals are required when a cavity has invaded or is close to invading the center of the tooth (or the ‘nerve’), a tooth has abcessed due to existing deep fillings or trauma or additional filling retention is required.
A root canal should be like getting a filling, it should not be a painful experience. The process requires freezing the tooth, removing the dental decay if present and accessing the center of the tooth. The infected material is removed the root canals are cleaned and shaped and a filling is placed into the roots of the tooth.
