What Is a Root Canal?
A root canal is a procedure used to save or a badly decayed or damaged tooth. Without a root canal, a person’s tooth could become badly infected and abscessed.
During the procedure, your dentist at Boger Dental will remove the nerve and pulp around your tooth. They will also safely clear the area and seal it off to protect it from infection.
When Do You Need a Root Canal?
You might need a root canal if your tooth is badly infected or inflamed. Some signs you might need a root canal include:
- Sensitivity to hot or cold food and beverages
- Severe toothache
- Discolored tooth
If you notice any of these signs, contact Boger Dental immediately.
