When bacteria enter the pulp of a tooth, an infection can develop. This can spread to adjacent teeth and impact your oral health.
A root canal can eliminate infection at its source by removing the inflamed nerves, tissues, and blood vessels from inside the tooth.
At Parkway Dental in Albuquerque, NM, we use advanced technology to provide comfortable and effective treatment.
