A cavity or other tooth damage, even a crack too small to see, can allow bacteria to reach the pulp of your tooth. The result can be a painful infection that can have effects that reach beyond your smile. Tooth pain or sensitivity can be indicators of an infection, and if you are experiencing either of these problems, contact Dental Renaissance at 972-423-0880. Our dentist, Dr. Kari Blankenship, will be happy to see you for a root canal treatment in Plano, Texas.
