The pulp of your tooth can become infected through a number of things, including a cavity, trauma or even a crack that is almost microscopic. The result can be pain, swelling and even problems that affect your general health. At the first sign of a problem with a tooth, call 408-973-8500 to plan a visit with our dentist. Dr. Jamie Choi and our team can see you for a nonsurgical root canal treatment in San Jose, California.
