Endodontics in Flossmoor, IL

5-Star-Rated Care from Our Experienced Team

If you’re experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks, it could be a sign of tooth damage requiring a visit to our endodontic specialists at The Center For Dental Excellence. Additionally, if you have been involved in an accident and received facial trauma and/or there is swelling around the teeth, gums, or your face, our experienced team can help. Endodontics in Flossmoor, IL includes root canals and the treatment of tooth pain focused on salvaging your natural teeth.

What Is a Root Canal?

A root canal is a procedure used to salvage a tooth by removing an infected and damaged root nerve. The surgery involves gently removing the nerve and pulp, to prevent further damage to the surrounding teeth and gum. Even though endodontics is often referred to as a root canal, the root itself does not get removed; just the soft tissue from inside the structure. If your tooth has experienced minimal decay, then a small filling may be the required treatment. However, if the tooth decay is severe, then root canal therapy will be required for restoration.

What Can Cause Infected Pulp in Your Tooth?

  • A deep cavity
  • Repeated dental procedures
  • A cracked or broken tooth
  • Injury to the tooth (even if there’s not a visible crack or chip)

Are Root Canals Painful?

Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort. Depending on the severity of your case, the entire process will take one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile! If you continue to care for your teeth and gums, your restored tooth could last a lifetime. If you find yourself nervous about the prospect of a root canal, let us know! Our root canal specialists always want you to feel comfortable and pain-free, and we will work with you to ensure your entire visit with us is stress-free. Your health and happiness are our main concerns!
