  1. Hello Mihir !
    Root canal is recommended when caries reaches pulp chamber or beyond ..in this we remove pulp tissue and clean the canals to fill canal with endodontic material. Yes, it becomes dead but you should go for it as it saves your tooth .Also if root canal treatment is done nicely it will heal your infection .It has very rare chances that dead tooth can lead to disease. saving a tooth is better.
    Thanks
