Inside each of your teeth is a small bundle of nerves and blood vessels called the pulp. The pulp is the "living" part of your tooth. It keeps your tooth healthy and it helps you sense hot and cold.
If the pulp is exposed through a crack or a cavity it can become infected, leading to potential gum infection and the loss of the tooth. In cases where the pulp becomes exposed, it needs to be removed with a root canal so the tooth can be preserved.
Log Home Dental offers in-office endodontic services, including root canals, to keep your teeth healthy and preserve them in case of injury or decay.
