Root canal treatment is required when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected. One of the main reasons for infection of the nerve is because a tooth has had a large cavity that has been untreated for a long time. Root canal treatment involves removing the dental pulp using thin metal files, cleaning and shaping the root canals, and filling them with a rubber-like material. When root canal treatment is finished, often a full coverage filling or crown is required to protect the tooth.
