If a tooth receives extensive damage, the inner pulp or nerve of the tooth can become infected. If this happens, Dr. Mark Hughen may recommend root canal therapy to preserve your tooth. Previously, root canals have been known to be a painful procedure, but with the modern technology and experience that we have in Primary Dental Clinic, we can reduce any discomfort and ensure that you receive an effective, successful treatment. We invite you to contact our office at 432-570-7080 if you have questions about receiving a root canal in Midland, Texas, and to schedule your appointment with our caring, gentle dentist.
