It only takes a cavity or even tooth damage so minor it could be easily overlooked to create an infection in the pulp of your tooth. If that infection is not treated, it can become uncomfortable and could eventually require an extraction. If you are coping with a painful or sensitive tooth, please call Contemporary Family Dentistry at 405-387-9300. A member of our team can plan a visit with our dentists, Dr. Sid Johnson, Dr. Malori Mills and associates, for a root canal in Newcastle, Oklahoma.
