A cavity or crack that is too small to see can allow dangerous bacteria to penetrate your tooth and create an infection. If that infection is not treated, it can create discomfort, swelling and problems for your general heath. Eventually, the tooth may require an extraction. If you have developed pain or sensitivity in a tooth, call Avon Dental Care at 440-937-2273. One of our team members can schedule you for a root canal treatment in Avon, Ohio, with our dentists, Dr. Thomas R. Hughes or Dr. Troy Steinhilber.
