Our general dentists at Louisiana Dental Center are capable of performing most root canal therapy procedures without having to refer you to a specialist. However, for complex cases, we can refer you to an endodontist. Root canal therapy can often save infected teeth from extraction by cleaning and treating the inner chambers to remove bacteria. If you are experiencing tooth pain, swelling, or dark spots on one or more teeth, call (985) 876-0448 and schedule an appointment with one of our doctors, as you may need root canal therapy in Houma, Louisiana.
