If your tooth is severely decayed, our dentists may recommend a root canal to remove the infected and decayed tissues from inside your tooth and prevent it from being extracted. Root canal therapy is often an alterative to extraction, and can help you enjoy your original teeth for years to come. For more information about root canal therapy in Kansas City, Missouri, and to make your appointment with Dr. Mark Jensen or Dr. Anisha Patel, call Dental Smile Makers at 816-436-8949.
