Pain Relief Right When You Need It

In most cases, a cavity only damages the outermost layer of a tooth or enamel. However, if one is left untreated for a long time, bacteria can actually reach the sensitive internal nerve of a tooth called the dental pulp, causing an infection that usually brings with it quite a bit of pain.
