Why would I need a Root Canal?

If bacteria from a deep cavity or crack reaches the pulp (or nerve) of the tooth it will become infected.  This infection will not clear up on its own.  You may or may not experience pain from an infected tooth.  The nerve chamber inside your tooth needs to be cleaned and disinfected.  This is done during a root canal  procedure.
