Term Definition
Root Canal Therapy

A root canal is performed on infected necrotic (dead) teeth and irreversibly inflamed teeth. These conditions can be caused by injury, fracture, or decay. During the root canal procedure the internal living pulp of the tooth is delicately removed with small precision-made files and the space is filled with a sterile material to prevent further infection. Contrary to popular belief most root canal procedures are absolutely painless and even “boring”.
