An infected tooth can cause several problems for your smile. An infection in the pulp can lead to discomfort, swelling and even problems with your general health. In the past, the only treatment available would have been an extraction, but at Elevated Dentistry, we offer root canal therapy in Charlottesville, Virginia. Our dentist can remove the infection and save your tooth and your smile. If you have a painful or sensitive tooth, call 434-212-6544 for your appointment with Dr. Nicholas Bottorff.
