Although the pulp in the center of the tooth contains the tissue and nerves needed to keep your tooth alive, if it becomes infected, our dentist, Dr. Rachel Swart, can remove it with a root canal in Cary, North Carolina, while still preserving the structure of your tooth and protecting your smile. If you have been having problems with one of your teeth, call Serene Smiles Dentistry at 919-460-7025 to schedule your appointment.
