Are you suffering with a toothache right now? You could be in need of a root canal in Arlington, TX. Although this procedure has a negative reputation in general, it actually is meant to relieve pain. Encore Dentistry knows that root canals require greater compassion, and Dr. Nancy Cabansag can perform your root canal with her gentle, caring touch.
A toothache is one signal that extensive decay is damaging the nerve that runs through your tooth. This nerve, referred to as the pulp, can become inflamed if decay reaches through the enamel and dentin layers of your tooth. When this happens, a root canal reverses the damage. If you opt not to have a root canal when decay is this extensive, further damage may eventually lead to tooth loss.
A root canal involves the removal of the nerve and flushing of the nerve chamber. The canal is then filled, stopping the progression of decay that caused the problem to begin with. If you’ve been dealing with chronic toothaches, contact Encore Dentistry today to find out if a root canal could be exactly what you need to get back to living without the pain of extensive tooth decay.
