Dr. Kaveendra Ranasinghe and Dr. Kirk Christianson may recommend a root canal treatment if your tooth becomes infected or injured. This procedure removes the damaged tissue, restoring the tooth so that you can continue to use it normally. This treatment also prevents the need for a tooth extraction and keeps the infection from spreading to other areas of your mouth. We welcome you to call Downtown Dental Care at 503-228-4122 to schedule a consultation with our dentists and learn more about root canal therapy in Portland, Oregon.
