  1. Root canals become necessary when the nerve, becomes inflamed, infected or dies. If the tooth is not treated it will lead to pain and eventually an abscess. This can be caused by deep decay, repeated dental procedures, or a chip or crack in the tooth. Trauma or a blow to the tooth can also cause this.
