When the inside of a tooth, the pulp, becomes badly infected or damaged, the tooth can die. At this point, a dentist may have only two treatment options available. 

A good dentist will always try to avoid extracting the tooth and will opt for root canal treatment whenever possible. Root canal procedure involves removing the damaged pulp, filling the hole and sealing the tooth and is used when a tooth is:

  • Badly decayed
  • Badly cracked, chipped or broken
  • Too weak to hold a normal filling
