Our experienced dentist may recommend a root canal to remove infection and damaged tooth tissue and restore your oral health. This endodontic treatment is usually the only alternative to tooth extraction, and in most cases is the preferred treatment as it allows you to continue using your original tooth. Give us a call at (503) 244-4837 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Melissa Beadnell at Simply Smiles Dental and learn more about root canal therapy in Portland, Oregon.
