Each of your teeth is clad in a durable mineral substance known as tooth enamel, which provides you with the basic ability to bite and chew the foods you consume. It also helps to protect the sensitive internal structures of your teeth.
If a single tooth suffers from an untreated cavity or a significant dental fracture the problem area can potentially extend beyond tooth enamel layer to affect the inner pulp or root of the tooth. In many of these cases the individual experiences immediate issues with sensitivity and a possibly worsening toothache.
If you are having a problem with one of your teeth the wisest course of action is to seek treatment from a dentist like Dr. Rosendo Garza. The specialist training he has received can quickly assess the nature and severity of the problem to develop an effective treatment plan. Procrastinating toothache treatment could lead to significant complications.
A tooth that suffers from trauma or tooth decay in the core pulp or root often needs a root canal. Also known as endodontic therapy, the treatment plan is designed to excise any compromised tissues from within the tooth. Then, our dentist will use special materials to create an abutment capable of securing an eventual dental crown.
We will explain any other aftercare instructions to you, which might include taking prescription medications.
