Sometimes dental damage is obvious, such as a chipped, broken or severely decayed tooth. But in some instances, you may have a crack so small that is almost invisible. Any damage to your tooth can allow bacteria to invade the pulp inside, which can be very painful and may even cost you your tooth. If you have been experiencing a toothache or sensitivity, call Lowcountry Dental Associates at 843-559-3530. Our dentists, Dr. Randy Jones and Dr. Robert Gamble, can use a root canal treatment in Johns Island, South Carolina, to preserve your tooth and your smile.
