Bacteria can infect the pulp of your tooth through a cavity, or even a crack that is almost impossible to detect during an exam. If that infection is not addressed, the result can be pain, swelling and problems for your overall health. If you have developed a painful or sensitive tooth, the dentist and team at Bowes Dental Care can see you for a visit for a root canal in Elgin, Illinois. To schedule your appointment with Dr. Santhi Yenna, call our office at 847-697-9900 today.
