At Mira Mesa Dental Care, our dentist does everything possible to protect your natural teeth and to help you have the strong, healthy smile you deserve. If you have infected dental pulp (the soft layer of tissue in the center of your teeth), our dentist, Dr. Rossana T. Alfonso, may recommend root canal treatment to alleviate pain and pressure, and to protect your tooth. If you have any questions about the benefits of root canal treatment in San Diego, California, we urge you to contact us today.
