The pulp of your tooth, which is the innermost layer, contains the tissues, nerves and blood vessels that make sure your tooth stays healthy. If that pulp becomes infected due to tooth decay or dental damage, our dentists may be able to preserve the structure of the tooth by removing the infection through root canal therapy in Sacramento, California. If one of your teeth has been causing you discomfort, call Sierra Oaks Dental at (916) 846-9828 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Peter Kim, Dr. Shah Khodai or Dr. Navid Torabian.
