When cavities or physical trauma damage the pulp of the tooth, this can lead to severe infections, decay and more if left unchecked. In these instances, our dentists, Dr. Monica Borris and Dr. Kelly Thompson, will often suggest a root canal treatment to salvage and restore the tooth to working order. If you have cavities or tooth pain and think you might need a root canal treatment in Lakewood, Colorado, or the surrounding areas, please call Borris Dental at Belmar right away at 303-936-3700 to learn more about your treatment options.
