Root canal treatment or endodontic treatment, is a common procedure in dentistry. The main indications for root canal treatment are irreversible inflammation of the dental pulp (pulpitis) and death of the dental pulp caused by carious processes, tooth cracks or chips, or dental trauma.

The success of root canal treatment depends on a series of variables related to the preoperative condition of the tooth, as well as the endodontic procedures.
