If you have a bad tooth, bleeding gums, or any other issues, it is time to schedule an appointment with your dentist in Pasadena.
Without regular comprehensive dental examinations, oral problems can get worse. Your small cavity could develop into a larger one requiring a dental crown over the filling. In some cases, the tooth decay can infect the nerve of the tooth. If this occurs, you will need root canal therapy or may even need an extraction.

Your Pasadena dentist is always up to date when it comes to new guidance and/or rulings.
