When do you need an Endodontist?
To cure an infected tooth, a root canal procedure is used. Tooth pain and inflammation are caused by infected pulp in the inner part of the tooth. Your tooth, gums, and jaw can all be harmed over time if an infection is neglected. With a root canal procedure, the infection is eliminated along with the pain. It may even spread to other parts of your body and make you ill if left untreated.
