Root canal treatment is carried out when the nerve (also called the “pulp”) inside a tooth is either inflamed or dead.
The nerve may become inflamed or may die if there is significant decay in a tooth, if there is a large restoration (filling or crown), or if the tooth has been subjected to trauma.
The inflamed nerve may cause toothache or remain pain-free. When the nerve dies, the space it inhabits (the root canal) rapidly becomes infected with bacteria. This may cause pain and swelling in the supporting tissues (abscess), or the tooth may remain symptom-free.
