Occasionally, tooth decay may move into the roots, nerves, or pulp of the tooth. When this occurs, our dentist can perform a root canal to remove the diseased and infected tissue and return your tooth to health. Root canal therapy is often the only alternative to a tooth extraction, and can help you enjoy your original tooth for years to come. Call Plano Parkway Dental today to learn more about root canal therapy in Plano, Texas, and to schedule your appointment with Dr. Jesse Taylor.
