What is a Root Canal?

A Root Canal is a dental procedure used to saved and restore a badly damaged tooth. With many advances in local anasthetics and the Root Canal procedure itself, it is usually a fairly straight forward and pain free procedure. Dr. Burkhart the Orange City Family Dentist has saved a great many patients from enduring the pain of an infected and/or damaged tooth via Root Canal. 

Sign that a tooth may need a Root Canal can include: 

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Moderate to severe pain
  • Swelling and/or irritation of the surrounding gum tissue
  • Temperature sensivity

Check with your dentist if you have any cause to think you may need treatment for such signs. Often times a Root Canal is done to save a tooth and restore functionality.
