Infection and injury can cause decay to move to the inner portions of your tooth. When this occurs, our skilled dentist can perform a root canal to remove the damaged tissue and restore your oral health. This treatment can often prevent the need for a tooth extraction. We welcome you to contact Gentle Touch Family Dentistry at 248-552-0076 to make your appointment with Dr. Dana L. Greer and find out how you can benefit from root canal therapy in Lathrup Village, Michigan.
