Why do I need root canal therapy if my tooth does not hurt?

The absence of pain means that the nerve was so severely damaged that the tooth lacks any sensation (i.e. Hot, cold, pain). Severely damaged tooth nerves indicate an infection and root canal therapy is needed to prevent spreading of infection asymptomatically in the surrounding bone and destroying the bone.
