Any damage to your teeth can put you at risk for an infection of your tooth pulp. That infection can be painful and cause problems for your oral and general health. If it is not addressed, you could eventually need an extraction. If you are coping with a painful or sensitive tooth, contact Apollonia Dental at 860-704-8000 to meet with our dentist. Dr. James McGrath can let you know if you could benefit from a root canal treatment in Middletown, Connecticut.
