Root Canals

With a root canal therapy, you can save your infected or decayed teeth and avert the need for dental bridges or implants—thus, we provide this treatment here at Chicago Dental Arts.

What Exactly is a Root Canal Procedure?

At the center of your tooth, beneath the dentin and the white enamel, is soft tissue called pulp. This pulp is made up of blood vessels and nerves that help grow your tooth during its development. However, over time and with poor dental hygiene habits, this pulp can get infected and damaged due to a variety of reasons: deep decay, cracks and chips, and dental trauma. Your pulp is likely infected if you feel severe pain and swelling in your tooth, as well as heightened tooth sensitivity to temperature while you are eating or drinking.

Rest assured that removing your tooth’s pulp will not cause any long-term damage or change the way that your tooth operates.

If you, indeed, have an infected pulp, we’ll likely recommend a root canal procedure to get rid of it. Our dentists in Skokie will remove the damaged pulp and clean the root canal system thoroughly before sealing it. Usually, this procedure involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the level of treatment required.
