In common language, root canal treatment is most commonly done on a decayed tooth where the infection has reached the nerves and blood supply of the tooth. The nerves of such teeth become inflamed and irritated causing pain. It may also lead to swelling if left untreated. This treatment saves your natural tooth from being removed.

The first and foremost would be deep decay in the tooth, it is also done in cases where a tooth has chipped off/ cracked till the level of nerves or due to trauma to the face leading to injury to the nerves of teeth. Another reason could be a large deep filling which over time may require RCT if pain and/ or swelling occurs.
