A root canal treatment is the process of removing the infected diseased, or dead pulp from the root of the tooth. If a root canal is not performed on an infected pulp, the infection will spread to the rest of the tooth and the entire tooth will need to be extracted. A root canal treatment consists of the creation of an access hole in the tooth, the cleaning of the root canals, and the placement of a filling. Once the root canal treatment is complete, the tooth takes a post and core, and covered by a crown forĀ strength.
