Definition: Root Canal Therapy
or Root Canal Treatment is a dental procedure to fix a tooth by removing the pulp chamber
of the tooth and filling it with a suitable filling material. A root canal is usually performed when the tooth cannot be filled
or restored any other way because the decay
has reached the nerve of the tooth or the tooth has become infected.
