A root canal is a dental treatment to repair and save a tooth that has been badly decayed or infected. During this procedure, the nerve and pulp of the tooth are removed. After the inside is cleaned, it is sealed to prevent abscesses and further decay. These treatments are highly successful in preventing further damage to that tooth, and most teeth that have been treated with a root canal last a lifetime.
