When decay or infection reaches the pulp of the tooth, it can be extremely painful. Our goal is to help you keep as many of your natural teeth as possible. If the infection is not bad enough and your decayed tooth can be saved, our dentists recommend root canal therapy. We remove the affected dental pulp, and fill the tooth with a composite material. We perform many root canals in-house, and are happy to refer you to a specialist to protect your tooth, should you so require.
