Endodontics at Wicker Park Dental Studio focuses on treating the inside of the tooth, particularly the pulp and nerves, to save natural teeth and maintain oral health in Chicago.

What Does Endodontic Treatment Involve?

Endodontic treatment, most commonly root canal therapy, involves removing infected or damaged pulp from inside the tooth, cleaning and disinfecting the inner chamber, and then filling and sealing it to prevent further infection.

Why Is Root Canal Therapy Often Necessary?

Root canal therapy is necessary to treat:

  • Deep decay reaching the tooth pulp.
  • Infections or abscesses within the tooth.
  • Injuries or trauma causing pulp damage.

What Are the Signs You Might Need Endodontic Treatment?

Signs include severe tooth pain, sensitivity to hot and cold, swelling and tenderness in the gums, and discoloration of the tooth.

How to Care for Your Teeth After Endodontic Treatment?

Post-treatment care involves:

  • Practicing good oral hygiene.
  • Avoiding chewing on the treated tooth until fully restored.
  • Regular dental check-ups to monitor the tooth.
