Root canal treatment is used for restoration or to save an infected tooth instead of removing it completely. The term "root canal" is derived from cleaning of the canals inside a tooth's root. Alternatives for this also consist of extracting the damaged tooth and replacing it with a dental implant. There are various cases of teeth infection where the infection reaches the teeth pulp, causing extreme pain. Due to this, the root of the tooth can also get affected. This treatment helps to clean the root canal and the pulp chamber.
