A root canal is a procedure that extracts the nerve from the central part of the tooth, reshapes the root canal space, and seals it with an inert filler. Dr. Russell Taylor may recommend root canal treatment to save your tooth and prevent extraction when the inner tissues of your tooth are damaged or infected.
