Your teeth consist of three different layers. The innermost layer is the pulp, which is where the live tissue of your tooth is located. When the pulp becomes damaged or infected, it can cause pain and sensitivity to your tooth. If this has happened to you, Dr. Vahid Bashi may perform a root canal to remove the injured tissue and return your tooth to good health. Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, root canals can be performed more quickly and more comfortably than ever before. Contact Best Care Dental at 719-627-5916 to learn more about root canals and to schedule your appointment with our gentle dentist.
