What exactly IS a root canal?

Think of it like a filling all of the way up or down a tooth root. Basically, something (decay, trauma, etc) has caused the nerve of a tooth to be inflamed and removal of the nerve is necessary. I tend to refer all of my root canals to dentists who specialize in those procedures called ENDODONTISTS and they remove the nerve and fill the canal with an inert material.
