Root canal therapy repairs and saves a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During the procedure, the nerve and pulp of the affected tooth are removed and the inside is cleaned and sealed.
After treatment, a temporary filling might be placed to protect your tooth until the full restoration is complete.
