Most of the time, a root canal is needed to treat a dental pulp infection. This occurs when bacteria reaches the sensitive inner tissue of one of your teeth, which contains numerous blood vessels as well as a nerve. The treatment involves creating a small hole in the tooth, removing the pulp, and then cleaning and filling it. After that, the pain should be gone, and then the tooth is further rebuilt by covering it with a dental crown.
