Root canals (also called endodontics) are beneficial if you have a tooth whose internal structure is damaged. Root canals are indicated when the dental pulp is damaged or the tooth nerve is affected. A root canal is a dental procedure used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. It can restore your tooth to a state of health by treating the damaged part of your tooth. A root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits to your dentist.
