Tooth decay, or a crack or chip — no matter how small — can lead to an infection in the pulp of the tooth, which in turn can lead to more serious health problems. Our dentists, Dr. Pat Murphy, Dr. Patrick Heulsmann, and Dr. Mike Murphy, can rescue the tooth with root canal therapy in Maryville, Illinois. If you have a tooth that has been giving you problems, call Dental Wellness Center of Maryville at 618 288 1923, and we will be happy to help you plan your visit.
