If your dental pulp—or the soft layer in the center of your tooth—becomes infected and is left untreated, your tooth may die. Our dentist, Dr. Rossana T. Alfonso, may recommend root canal treatment to alleviate a severe toothache, to relieve sensitivity to hot and cold objects, or to protect your natural tooth. At New Image Dentistry, we are devoted to offering you high-quality dental care. If you would like more information about a root canal in National City, California, we urge you to contact us today.
