If your tooth is infected or damaged, Dr. Colby Cockrell may recommend a root canal to save it and prevent an extraction. Root canal therapy is often the preferred treatment, as it allows you to continue using your original tooth rather than requiring a more extensive and complex procedure to replace it. Call Tranquility Dental Wellness at 360-999-5654 to schedule an appointment with our dentists and learn more about the benefits of root canal therapy in Tumwater, Washington.
