An endodontic treatment
Root canal treatment, also called endodontic therapy, is necessary when the pulp of the tooth is infected following significant caries, cracks in the enamel or a trauma (shock). If the inflamed or infected pulp is left untreated, it can cause pain or lead to an abscess.
This treatment involves the removal of the infected pulp, the disinfection, and the filling and sealing of the root canal system. The tooth is then restored with a permanent filling or a crown.

When do you need a root canal treatment?
The infected tooth must be treated promptly
It is very important to treat a tooth that has an infected pulp. In addition to causing significant pain, infection can turn into an abscess or spread to the rest of the body, thereby severely impairing your health. If you do not choose to undergo a root canal treatment, tooth extraction is another option that will drain and eliminate the infection while eliminating the risk of spreading.
