Cavities are caused by harmful bacteria. Until those are cleared out and the cavity repaired by a filling or dental crown, that hole in your enamel will just get worse. Eventually, it can break through and allow those bacteria to infect the inside of your tooth.
That’s why you need to call our Leawood, KS dental office today at 913-945-1612 and schedule an appointment. If you have a toothache, it can be due to a bacterial infection inside the tooth. Thankfully, our dentists are trained to use root canals to remove the infection and the toothache it causes. And no, root canal procedures are not painful!
