Root Canal

A Root Canal Doesn’t Have to be Painful or Scary

A root canal is a procedure that removes a dead or infected nerve from the tooth. When the nerve inside of a tooth is no longer vital (living), it can cause pain or discomfort. Sometimes it feels like the entire jaw is hurting or all the teeth on that side feel pain. This is called Referred pain.
