Endodontics or Root canal treatment is performed to save a tooth which cannot be restored by a normal restoration or filling. In these cases the tooth damage will be extensive and would be involving the pulp chamber causing severe pain to the patient. Instead of complete removal, the original function of the tooth can be brought back by cleaning and disinfecting the canals and filling them with an inert material. However, the root canal treated tooth must be reinforced with a crown for its strength. The other alternative in a badly damaged tooth is removal. But if that tooth is not replaced it may lead to serious consequences like drifting of adjacent tooth, biting and chewing problems, and bone resorption. Hence, root canal treatment is one of the best alternatives in treating a infected tooth. On the more, fractured tooth, or those with any other infections or cysts etc also require a root canal treatment.
