The pulp in the center of your tooth plays an important role in keeping that tooth healthy. It contains the nerves and blood vessels needed for the tooth to stay alive. If bacteria reach that pulp through damage or decay, the resulting infection can be very painful and could even mean the loss of the tooth. At Canyon Road Dental Team, our dentists may be able to save your tooth with a treatment known as a root canal in Provo, Utah. To learn more, call 801-997-6728 to plan your visit with Dr. Adrian Huang or Dr. Preston Huang.
