However, the reality is that a root canal can save a tooth that in the past may have been lost to disease or would have required an extraction. Our dentist, Dr. Gretchen Drees, can remove the diseased and damaged tooth pulp, clean and seal your tooth, and help you enjoy a fully functional smile. If you have been having problems with one of your teeth, call Ashland Dental Arts at 804-798-7388 today to find out if a root canal in Ashland, Virginia is right for you.
