A cavity, or even a crack too small to be seen in a checkup, can allow bacteria to reach the pulp of your tooth. That infection can cause swelling, pain and even problems for your overall health. In the distant past, an infection would have meant an extraction. But at Martin Dentistry, our dentists, Dr. Doug, Dr. Dax or Dr. Sky, can see you for a root canal in Stockton, California. This treatment can relieve your discomfort and help you keep your smile intact. Call 209-951-4251 to learn more and plan your visit.
