Root canal therapy is a treatment performed by a dentist aimed to treat issues with infection and trauma to the tooth. Root canal therapy allows dentists to eliminate the infection or dead tissue without having to remove the tooth.
Dental infections can cause severe pain and lead to serious health problems. If you notice pain or swelling in your mouth, that may be a sign of infection in your tooth. Often times, symptoms include severe pain to hot or cold, pain when chewing, swelling inside your mouth or outside your mouth, and pain that throbs and may even wake you up at night. You may even experience a foul taste in your mouth.
If you notice any of those symptoms, give us a call at bohn dental right away. (616) 425-8892
