A root canal is a therapy done on a tooth to treat a disorder of the nerve (pulp) of the tooth. Usually it is done when a tooth has an infected nerve and has pain and discomfort (sometimes there is just an infected nerve without any pain or discomfort). The diseased nerve is removed and the empty chamber is cleaned and sterilized. Then the chamber is filled with a special filling material. A temporary filling is placed until a final restoration can be done. In the back teeth a crown is usually the final restoration of choice, and in the front, it can often be either a crown or a filling.
