What is Root Canal Treatment and do I need it?

I had severe pain in my teeth. I consulted my dentist, he says that one of my tooth has decayed a lot and suggested me Root canal treatment. What is Root canal treatment? Is there any other option for me? Please let me know.  Answer (by Dr. Chirag Semlani): Root Canal Treatment (RCT) is the procedure where to save the tooth it is needed to remove the nerves from the tooth and replace it with the artificial nerve. If the decay has already reached the pulp of the tooth where the nerves are located the only option to save the tooth is RCT. So you don’t have any other option if the decay had reached the softer part of the tooth (pulp).
