Damage caused by tooth decay, trauma, or even a crack small enough that it could be overlooked during a checkup can allow bacteria to reach the pulp of your tooth. The resulting infection can create discomfort, swelling and even other health problems outside of your smile. Call Dental Charm at 773-248-8580 if you are dealing with a toothache or even tooth sensitivity. A member of our team will schedule you for a visit with our dentist, Dr. Patricia Crisostomo, for root canal therapy in Chicago, Illinois.
