When a tooth becomes badly decayed or infected, Dr. Barbara Lewis-Heywood may recommend root canal therapy to repair it and prevent further damage. Such decay can be caused by cavities, damage from injury or bruxism, and other causes. By using advanced techniques, root canal therapy at Riverside Dental & Beauty Spa is as comfortable and painless as possible.
