When the dental pulp located inside the tooth becomes infected or damaged, it can cause severe tooth pain and sensitivity. To treat this condition, your talented Salt Lake City, Utah dentists may recommend root canal therapy. Root canal therapy can prevent the need for tooth extraction and can restore the function, health, and structure of the tooth. During the treatment, Dr. Carroll and Dr. Jenkins will remove the infected portion of the dental pulp, fill in the tooth, and cap the tooth with a dental crown to improve its structure and appearance. To learn more about how root canal therapy can improve your oral health, we invite you to call or visit us at Brighton Family Dentistry. We are eager to improve your smile!
