Even a very small amount of tooth damage, such as a crack too small to see, can allow bacteria to reach the pulp of your tooth. The resulting infection can create pain and swelling and could even cost you your tooth. If you are living with a toothache or sensitivity, contact the team at Palm Desert Center for Advanced Dentistry, Periodontics, Cosmetics & Implants at 760-340-1030. Our dentists will be happy to see you for an appointment for a root canal treatment in Palm Desert, California.
