My old root canal was severely infected and painful. These wonderful endodontist looked to see if it could be saved and it could. They were honest and upfront about risk of loosing my tooth. They called me every night for 3 days and brought me back for long-acting Novocain so I did not have to take too much pain medicine. My tooth is saved and I have made new friends, My husband saw them and loved them and my son will see them soon.
