The pulp inside can become infected when a tooth is cracked, broken, or severely decayed. If the pulp is not removed with a root canal, it can cause an abscess or even spread the infection to surrounding teeth.
Root canal therapy is a highly-successful restorative procedure that can save a damaged tooth from extraction and protect it for many years. Although root canals have gotten a bad reputation over the years, the infected tooth is probably causing you more discomfort than the treatment will.
