Root Canal Therapy

Root canal therapy at Wicker Park Dental Studio is a common and effective treatment to relieve dental pain and save teeth that might otherwise need to be extracted.

How Does Root Canal Therapy Save Your Tooth?

Root canal therapy saves a tooth by removing the infected or inflamed pulp, cleaning and disinfecting the inner chamber, and then filling and sealing it. This process eliminates pain and infection while preserving the tooth's natural structure.

What Are the Steps Involved in a Root Canal Procedure?

The procedure typically involves:

  • Numbing the Area: Ensuring you are comfortable and pain-free.
  • Removing the Infected Pulp: Accessing the pulp chamber and removing the infected material.
  • Cleaning and Sealing: Thoroughly cleaning the canal and sealing it to prevent future infection.
  • Restoring the Tooth: Often with a crown to protect and restore its functionality.

Is Root Canal Therapy Painful?

Modern root canal therapy is typically no more uncomfortable than getting a filling. We use local anesthesia to ensure a pain-free experience, and many patients find relief from the severe pain caused by the infection.

How to Ensure Successful Healing After a Root Canal?

Post-procedure care includes:

  • Avoiding chewing on the treated tooth until it's fully restored.
  • Maintaining good oral hygiene to prevent further infection.
  • Following any specific care instructions provided by your dentist.
