Tooth damage from decay or even a minor crack can allow bacteria to infect the pulp at the center of your tooth. That infection can be extremely painful and can lead to swelling and other oral health problems. If you are dealing with a problem tooth, call our team at 601-583-8726. Our dentist, Dr. Barbara Mauldin, may be able to save your tooth and your smile with an appointment for root canal therapy in Petal, Mississippi.
