In some cases, dental damage can be obvious, such as a cavity or a broken tooth, but a cracked tooth may not be as easy to notice. Even a very small crack, however, is enough to allow bacteria to infect the interior of your tooth, known as your pulp, and infected pulp can create a toothache or even result in an extraction if left untreated. At Katy Dental Arts, our dentist, Dr. Sula Umansky, may be able to solve this problem and save your tooth with root canal therapy in Katy, Texas. If you are experiencing pain or sensitivity in one of your teeth, call 281-528-9337 today to schedule an appointment.
