Endodontic Therapy Saves Teeth

by | May 31, 2018 | Dental Care

When your teeth hurt or when they don’t look as good as they could, you want the pain to end and your smile to look more dazzling. If your toothache is caused by an infection in the pulp of your tooth’s root canal, turn to the doctors here. Dr. Flowers and Dr. Kaushik, endodontists in Chicago, will perform the procedure to rid your tooth of infection, which could be caused by decay, cracks, chips or trauma.

Let untreated, compromised pulp leads to tooth loss. As well-trained dental specialists, we’re in the business of saving teeth and giving you relief. When the pulp in the root canal becomes infected, you probably will experience not only pain but also sensitivity to hot and cold, discomfort while chewing or discoloration of the tooth.

As well-trained endodontists in Chicago, we will give you expert care. You will stay comfortable and relaxed in our state-of-the-art office with a calming ambiance. Don’t worry about pain during your procedure because most of our patients get intravenous sedation.

During endodontic therapy, we remove the infected pulp and clean it. After that, the area we worked on gets filled with rubber sealant. Finally, your tooth is topped by a crown for protection.

When the endodontic procedure is complete, you retain your natural-looking tooth and will have avoided the need for a dental implant. You will be able to chew and bite as before. This therapy can also protect your surrounding teeth from excessive force.

We are endodontists in Chicago who give quality care while offering you convenience. Visit our office here or in Glenview when you need a dental implant and periodontal services too. Contact Dental Specialists of South Loop & North Shore today to learn how we can help you.
