We have to appreciate 1000 times more a tooth than a diamond - Spanish Proverb
There are different reasons that can result in a root canal: a deep cavity, a crack in the tooth, or a dental trauma.
The nerve of the tooth will get an inflammation which will manifest strong pain. The next stage is the death of the nerve (necrosis) and an infection. If this is the case, the doctor will give you first an antibiotic to control the infection. A necrotic tooth that has no pain also requires a root canal to be done. The treatment can be done in one or 2 appointments, depending on the case. The root canal is a solution to keep your tooth.
