It is not pleasant to think about, but your mouth is full of bacteria. If your tooth becomes damaged, that bacteria can find its way to the pulp at the center of your tooth and create a serious infection. That infection can be uncomfortable and may even end with a lost tooth. However, our dentist can remove that infection and save your tooth and smile with a root canal in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. If you have a damaged tooth or are experiencing pain or swelling, call Kaloko Dental at 808-326-7755 to schedule a visit with Dr. Kristopher Devers.
