Why is root canal complete with crown? When the pulp inside a tooth becomes infected, a root canal is often the best treatment for fixing the problem and alleviating your pain. Root canals can save your teeth from further decay and dental issues. However, when a root canal is performed, the affected tooth becomes weaker.
A root canal is performed when there is an infection within the tooth. Your dentist will gain access to the center of the tooth to remove the infection, therefore stopping the infection altogether. When an infection reaches the inside, or pulp, of the tooth, it is called pulpitis.
Before a root canal, your tooth can be in severe pain, but the procedure will help remove the pain completely.
