A root canal is a procure used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. Dr. Wellik will remove the dead nerve from the tooth and then seal it off to prevent another infection or abscess from forming around the tooth. If the nerve is not removed, the infection will continue to cause swelling and pain.
