A root canal is a small tunnel under your tooth that houses the roots and nerve endings of each tooth. Typically, the signs of an infected root canal are swollen or a darkened gumline and unusual sensitivity to hot or cold food and beverages. Also, you may notice a small bump or tender area of your gum line.
If you are aware of any of these symptoms it is time to contact the dental experts at Kenny Road Family Dental, immediately.
