Bacteria can reach the pulp of your tooth through a cavity or even a crack that is almost too small to see. An infection can create discomfort, swelling and other health problems. In the past, you would have had to settle for an extraction, but at Subtle Smiles, our dentist and team offer root canal treatments in Missouri City, Texas. Dr. Martin Youngs can use this treatment to save your tooth and preserve your smile. Call 281-491-3626 today if you are dealing with dental pain or even just tooth sensitivity.
