Root canal therapy can be necessary when your tooth has been infected so far that it is infecting the soft inside tissue, or pulp, of your tooth. When you get an infection in the pulp of your tooth you might feel pain and swelling in that tooth. You might even have an abscess form inside the infected tooth. If left untreated, infection of a tooth’s pulp can put you at risk of losing your tooth completely or further complications.

Root canal therapy is there to make sure you don’t lose your tooth, and are able to keep your own, natural tooth. After the treatment is done and your mouth has recovered you should feel less pain that you did when the pulp was infected.
