If you have a severe toothache, there may be advanced stages of decay in your tooth and the dental pulp may be infected. If the dental pulp is infected, you will need a root canal. Root canal therapy is an endodontic procedure that is used to save your tooth when it has severe decay. During root canal therapy, Dr. Sumeet Bagai will remove the infected dental pulp from the tooth and thoroughly clean it before filling the tooth cavity with a medicated material to help restore the health of your tooth. After the root canal therapy, the tooth can be restored with a filling, inlay, onlay, or crown.
Despite the common belief that root canals are painful, root canal therapy at Dupage Dental Smiles is a relatively pain-free procedure. We use modern technology and the latest techniques to minimize discomfort during the treatment. Our friendly dentist and dental team will also work with you to determine what type of sedation is a good option for you during this treatment. The pain relief you will feel after the treatment is significant.
After a root canal, you will be able to chew normally and restore the force of your bite. Root canal therapy can help to save your teeth and prevent the need for more costly replacement teeth in the future.
