Root Canal Treatment Procedure http://www.123articleonline.com/articles/815297/root-canal-treatment-procedure Tooth decay is one of the leading causes of tooth loss. If the decay becomes severe enough that no other treatment can be done to save the tooth, an extraction will be done to ensure that the infection and damage will not spread to other teeth and to the gums. However, if the affected tooth can still be saved from extraction, a root canal procedure is given to nurse the tooth back to its proper use and appearance.
