There are instances in which dental decay or caries can reach the center pulp of your tooth and cause an infection. The effects of this are often very painful, and most cases require root canal therapy to remove the infection. If you are experiencing any dental pain, we invite you to visit with our dentist to determine whether you require root canal therapy in Metairie, Louisiana. We invite you to call the office of Raul Ramirez DDS at 504-885-3255 to schedule your appointment.
