It is never as daunting as you may think!
Root canal is needed on a tooth where the dental pulp has been injured or is diseased due to trauma or the bacteria from tooth decay. The injured and/or diseased pulp causes the nerve to become aggravated and the blood vessels to expand, hence causing the dull throbbing pain most people associate with teeth that need root canal treatment.
