If one only looks at a diagram like the one included in this post, they may assume that root canal procedures are relatively simple procedures. Yet, what a diagram does not convey is the skill and technique that is required for a dentist in Bakersfield to carry out these procedures effectively. In fact, it is for this very reason that many people stigmatize the root canal as a worse than normal procedure when it comes to pain. The truth of the matter is that, when performed by an expert endodontist like Dr. Malhotra, the root canal procedure can offer a valuable solution to tooth pain with minimal procedure related discomfort.
Maybe the idea that root canals are simple has something to do with the fact that, by performing them with the regularity and high-level of success that he achieves, Dr. Malhotra makes these procedures seem easy. Yet, an infected nerve in a tooth, the primary culprit that necessitates a root canal procedure, is no laughing matter. These infected nerves can cause a great deal of pain, making the root canal procedure one of the most vital dental services that a Bakersfield endodontist can perform.
While some general dentists do perform what they might consider to be “simple” root canal procedures themselves, it is best that all patients go to an expert like Dr. Malhotra who makes endodontics his specialty and his passion.
