It aims to get rid of your root canal infection and decay and also protect it from any further damage or infection in the future.
Another contributor to the damage of tooth pulp is trauma to the mouth.

Any infection can spread extensively in the root canal, leading to abscess formation, which will cause great discomfort and pain to the patient. Hence, the early diagnosis of infection and its removal root canal treatment should be done.
Root canal treatment/Endodontic therapy is a dental procedure that involves the removal of infected dental pulp or the injured tooth and subsequent creation of an access cavity by the use of a dental handpiece.
It is followed by the decontamination of the cavity with the help of small files and an irritating solution.
Ultimately the clear and infection-free cavity is filled with the root canal filling material, and a crown may be placed over it for protection.
