This can cause severe pain and other complications that may eventually lead to tooth loss. To help preserve the tooth, endodontic treatment with root canal therapy is done.
At Orange Park Smiles in Florida, we have a team of highly experienced and knowledgeable dental professionals. They will make sure that your root canal treatment is done safely, effectively, and with long-term success in the preservation of your tooth. If you think you may need endodontic therapy, call us today for your initial dental exam.
