If your tooth is severely injured, damaged, or infected, our dentists may recommend root canal therapy. Root canal therapy can help to avoid the need for tooth extraction and improve your oral health. If you are experiencing tooth pain, you may suffer from a tooth infection; we encourage you to contact Southland Smiles soon to learn more about the benefits of getting a root canal in Flossmoor, Illinois, and to set up your next appointment with Dr. Mantoan and Dr. DiBenedetto.
