At the center of your tooth is pulp, which contains the nerves, blood vessels and other tissues that help keep your tooth alive. If that pulp becomes infected from a cavity or dental damage and that infection is not treated you may require a tooth extraction. However, our dentists, Dr. Robert T. Hurt III and Dr. Robert T. Hurt Jr., can preserve your tooth with root canal therapy in Cordele, Georgia. If you are concerned about the health of one of your teeth, call Hurt Family Dentistry at 229-273-6868 to plan your visit.
