When the pulp of a tooth becomes infected, a root canal procedure may be the best treatment to save the tooth from extraction. Contrary to its reputation, Dr. Stafford uses modern dental techniques to perform root canal treatment that is virtually painless. We encourage you to call Stafford Dental Center at 509-314-3008 if you have noticed pain or swelling around a tooth and need to see our dentist for a root canal in Zillah, Washington.
