Our bodies, as a defence mechanism, will initiate an “inflammation reaction” when irritants (such as those seeping out of a problematic tooth) have injured or destroyed body tissues. If incorporating the term “inflammation” into our description we would then say, root canal treatment is the treatment of the inner aspects of a tooth (whose nerve has undergone degenerative changes) so to provide an environment where the tissues surrounding a tooth’s root are free of, and will likely to continue to be free of, the presence of inflammation.
