Keep Your Teeth Healthy

Hearing the words "root canal" is probably one of the reasons why you don't go to the dentist as often as you should. But, like it or not, a root canal is a necessary procedure to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy.

Pulp in your teeth can become severely decayed or diseased, leading to painful tooth infections. At Bloomington Dental Group, we can perform root canals on your teeth so the infection doesn't spread, which can lead to more severe and sometimes life-threatening diseases.

Our experts in endodontics drill a small hole in the affected tooth to remove the pulp. The hole is covered up with a filling and possibly a crown, depending on the severity of the treatment.

Commons Symptoms of an Infected Tooth

It can be easy to know when you need to see a dentist for a root canal, but here are some specific symptoms to recognize so you know when you need to see the professionals at Bloomington Dental Group.
