Root Canal Therapy
Dentist in Chicago, IL
Root canal therapy is used for restoring a tooth that has experienced deep decay or trauma. Root canal therapy can save a tooth that otherwise would require extraction. During a root canal, the exposed or infected pulp (nerve) is removed and disinfected. Once the tooth is treated, it is covered with a crown for protection and strength. If left untreated, the infection can attack the root of the tooth causing pain, sensitivity, or even lead to tooth loss.
With advanced dental technology and methods, you will, in most instances, experience little to no pain and will be able to enjoy your restored tooth for years to come.
