Root Canal Therapy is the treatment of an infected or inflamed nerve and avoids the need for an extraction. When the nerve of a tooth becomes infected, this may spread through the root canal system and cause an abscess. Once the pulp is necrotic, it cannot heal otherwise. The only treatment alternatives are root canal therapy or extraction. The aim of the treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal.
