In a fully developed teeth, the teeth can survive without the pulp because the teeth continues to be nourished by the tissues that are surrounding it.
WHY WE NEED ROOT CANAL TREATMENT

The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes which are deep decay, repeated dental procedures on the teeth, faulty crowns, or a crack or chip in the teeth.
