Root canal treatment is used to clear infection and protect the tooth from subsequent infections. Since a tooth’s nerve is not vitally important to a tooth's health and function after the tooth has emerged through the gums, absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of the tooth. Successful endodontic therapy can save a tooth from extraction and ensure your oral and overall health is optimal.
