A root canal may be necessary when the tooth pulp becomes inflamed or infected. During a root canal, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and disinfected. It is then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material. A crown or filling is placed on the tooth and the restored tooth can then resume normal function.
