X-ray showing inflammation at the root tips
Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp tissues from the tooth in the event that it gets infected or inflammed. The pulp can be infected or inflammed due to either deep decay or an extensive restoration that involves the pulp; cracked or fractured tooth due to trauma; excessive wear of enamel and dentine exposing the pulp and sometimes as a result of severe gum disease.
