A root canal, also known as endodontic treatment, is a treatment performed to save an infected tooth. The dentist or endodontist performs this treatment by removing infected tissue from the inner canal of the tooth, refilling and sealing the tooth. A root canal alleviates infection in a tooth and is a procedure that can prevent future infections. Many patients experience complete relief from tooth pain immediately following a root canal and are able to resume daily activities shortly after the procedure.
