A root canal treatment which is also known as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy, is an effective way to remove decay and save your tooth; and when left untreated, such decay may lead to serious problems, including:
- • Damage to the tooth requiring the tooth be extracted.
- • Deterioration of the bone beneath your tooth roots.
- • Progression of swelling from the gums to your face.
- • Drainage of pus from a tooth abscess.
