A root canal is needed because bacteria have entered the inside of a tooth. Thus, the tooth is infected. First, a root canal is essential to decontaminate the tooth and eliminate the infection. Secondly, the body is releasing chemicals to fight the tooth’s infection. These chemicals can get into the bloodstream and cause inflammation elsewhere. Thus, tooth infections and any other infections should be treated as soon as possible.
