If your answer to one of the previous questions is yes, it is likely that root canal (nerves) of one of your teeth needs to be treated.
The tooth consists of 3 layers, which are enamel, ivory and pulp. The pulp consists of nerves and blood vessels feeding the tooth.
Decay begins on the surfaces of the tooth with an enamel layer and gradually expands towards the pulp and here the patient’s teeth begins to be sensitive when drinking cold water or hot liquids and sometimes when eating sweets, and with continue of decay towards the pulp, the pain increases and here the patient needs roots canal treatment (pulp).
Roots canal treatment is a simple and painless process that takes place under local anesthesia in one session. It is preferable to protect endodontically treated teeth from deterioration by placing porcelain crowns that improve the appearance at the same time.
