Root Canal Dental Treatment

If tooth decay is left untreated it will eventually spread to the tooth’s pulp or nerve causing an infection and pain, this is an indication for root canal therapy. During a root canal, the infected nerve within the tooth is removed. The procedure feels no different than having a simple filling done, the key is proper anesthesia. We will ensure that you are properly numb before doing this or any procedure. After a root canal, the tooth will have to be built back up with a post and core. A root canal will weaken the overall structure of the tooth, so a crown is always recommended to add strength to the tooth and prevent a fracture. In the case of any dental emergencies we offer emergency dental care across the Chicagoland area.
