At Vargas Dental Associates, we do everything we can to save your natural teeth. When a tooth is damaged beyond repair, we may recommend a dental crown to save your tooth, and when your tooth root is severely damaged or infected we may recommend a root canal. Many patients are fearful of this treatment before learning about the benefits of the procedure. Movies and TV shows often depict root canals to be something they are not. We are here to ease your mind and tell you more about the root canal treatment and how it can save your tooth.
