Why are root canals performed?

Root canals are performed to save teeth that have suffered internal infection, nerve or pulp damage. In addition to aleviating pain, a root canal will prevent an infection from spreading and causing the formation of an abscess inside a tooth and weakening it the point of needing an extraction.
 

How do I know if I need a root canal?

The most common signs that a root canal procedure might be necesary include: mild to severe tooth pain, noticable sensitivity of the tooth to hot or cold exposure (foods, liquids, etc), swelling or tenderness of the gums near the tooth, and any discoloration or darkening of the tooth.

The root canal procedure

A typical root canal procedure will start with using local anesthesia to make sure you are relaxed and don't feel any pain. The infected area will be accessed by drilling into the tooth, and any decayed nerve tissue, pulp, and debris will be completely removed. Once the tooth is cleaned out, it will be sealed and depending on the extent of the damage, possibly protected with a crown to prevent it from breaking or fracturing in the future.
