When confronted with the topic of root canals and endodontics, most people become frightened as they do not know exactly what the treatment entails. The truth is that root canals are completely safe. Dr. Malhotra and his team of root canal treatment specialist in Robstown will ensure that your root canal experience is stress and worry-free.
What Is A Root Canal?
When decay in the tooth penetrates both the tooth’s outer layer, known as the enamel, and the inner layer, known as the dentin, the individual will experience a strong and sharp pain. The pain is caused by the nerve of the tooth, which is now exposed to heat and cold. In order to repair the extensive amount of damage to the tooth, the root canal dentist Robstown will first clean out the tooth to remove the decay, remove the nerve itself from the canal of the tooth, and fill both the canal and tooth with a filling material. In most cases, the tooth will then be covered with a protective crown to prevent it from withstanding any more damage.
With the information you have learned here, you will be able to better understand the treatment that has been recommended for you.
