The two most common reasons a person needs a root canal are:
If either of these two scenarios happen, the only way to preserve the tooth and save the tooth from having long-term pain and infection is to have a root canal. A root canal replaces the nerve of the tooth with a therapeutic material to make the tooth healthy again and relieve you from any pain caused by the tooth.
Once a root canal is completed, your pain will be alleviated but the tooth will be more fragile. We strongly recommend proceeding with a crown after the root canal to stabilize the tooth for a better long-term prognosis.
