The pulp found at the center of your tooth contains everything your tooth needs to stay healthy. If that pulp becomes infected through tooth decay or damage caused by a trauma, the result can be a great deal of pain and even a lost tooth. At Maryville Family Dentistry, our dentist can offer root canal therapy in Louisville, Kentucky, to protect your smile and your oral health. If one of your teeth is feeling tender, contact 502-955-6134 for an appointment with Dr. Jonathan Mitchell.
