When is Root Canal Treatment Needed? Root Canal Vs. Filling
While minor cavities require a filling for treatment, an advanced cavity that has infected the nerves and blood vessels (pulp) within your tooth will require a root canal. During the root canal treatment, the pulp is completely removed in order to preserve the hard exterior of the tooth, which is then crowned to prevent further damage.

What Signs Indicate the Need for a Root Canal treatment?
Eating a cold bowl of ice cream or a hot bowl of soup can lead to a sharp pain or a dull ache in your tooth.
Pain may disappear for hours or days, but if it keeps returning, it's time to see a dentist.
Swelling around the infected tooth can be caused by a buildup of waste around the dead pulp tissue.
