Root Canals

If you are experiencing repetitive toothaches in Naperville, there is a good chance you need to visit Naperville Commons Dental for a root canal procedure. Relieve your pain and visit a dentist today! 

What is a Root Canal?

A root canal is the natural cavity in the center of the tooth that holds the nerve. This nerve is vital to your tooth’s health and functionality. A root canal procedure is restoration treatment used to repair a decayed tooth nerve and alleviate pesky toothaches in Naperville.  

Why Do You Need a Root Canal?

When the nerve tissue or pulp within your root canal becomes infected, it begins to break down and create unhealthy bacteria. The decay usually causes a toothache in Naperville, however, an untreated decayed nerve can cause many other problems. The infection will begin to spread beyond the tooth creating an abscessed tooth. An abscessed tooth can form a pus-filled sack at the end of the tooth root. This can lead to swelling of the face and neck, drainage into the gums and cheek, or even jaw bone loss.

What to Expect During a Root Canal Procedure

A root canal procedure will require two visits to Naperville Commons Dental. In the first visit, the dentist will take an x-ray to determine the extent of the infection. The dentist will then prepare the tooth for the procedure by drilling an opening into the root. He or she will then use a series of small files that increase in diameter to remove all of the infected pulp and bacteria from your root canal. Your tooth is cleaned and sealed. At the end of the first visit, the dentist will prepare your tooth for a crown and take an impression to send to the dental lab. 

The dental lab will take about 2-weeks to create a crown that matches the color and shape of your existing smile. In the second visit, the dentist will focus on placing and securing your crown. A crown is usually needed in order to fully restore the weakened tooth and eliminate the toothache in Naperville. The dental professional will expertly cement your crown and test to ensure you bite is comfortable.
