When left untreated, cavities can lead to the infected pulp, or center, of a tooth. In this case, our capable dentists may recommend a root canal to reduce any pain and prevent future decay. This can be seen as a scary procedure, which is why we go out of our way to listen to any concerns you may have. Our dentists, Dr. John Theriot and associates, have been providing considerate, gentle dental care to many families since 2003. You are invited to visit Theriot Family Dental Care if you have any questions about root canal therapy in Lafayette, Louisiana, or you can call us at 337-984-3408 to speak to our courteous office staff.
