A cavity or even a tiny crack in your tooth can allow bacteria to reach the pulp at the center of your tooth. The resulting infection can be painful, and without treatment, it can create problems for your general health. In the past, an infected tooth would have needed an extraction, but at Smiles by Hale, our dentist and team offer root canal treatments in Naples, Florida. Dr. Thomas Hale can use this treatment to relieve your discomfort and keep your smile intact. Call 239-593-0880 today, and a member of our team will help you plan your visit.
