If You Need It, We Are Here For You. We Can Do All Basic Root Canals

Contrary to typical feelings of anxiety patients may feel when they are told they need a root canal, modern root canal treatment is very similar to having a routine filling. Thanks to advances in root canal therapy, dentists today are often able to save severely damaged or decayed teeth in one or two easy root canal appointments. If your tooth is in need of a root canal, the staff at Polished – a dental studio in Chicago, IL offers services in endodontics (root canal therapy) and root canals.

What Is a Root Canal?

The pulp inside your tooth contains blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue that can potentially become inflamed or infected due to deep decay, dental procedures, cracks or chips in the tooth, or other trauma. If inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can cause further pain or lead to an abscess. During a root canal, the infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and sealed. It may be restored with a crown or filling for protection and normal tooth function.

Endodontic Treatment Can Save Your Tooth

Even if one or more of your teeth seem badly decayed, we may be able to help. Saving your natural tooth with root canal treatment can help you maintain your smile, allow you to eat the foods you love, and it limits the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime. If we find that you need root canal therapy, our staff will take the time to explain the procedure and answer any questions you might have about your treatment.
