Root Canal Treatment in Woodridge, Illinois

At Woodgrove Family Dentists, we do everything we can to help save your teeth and keep your smile healthy. We offer root canal treatment to help patients suffering from tooth pain due to injury or infection. Be sure to call our office right away if you experience a toothache. We offer same-day appointments to provide the urgent dental care you need.

What is Root Canal Treatment?

Root canal treatment is a procedure our dental team performs to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. A root canal procedure is performed when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected or the pulp (the material inside the tooth) becomes damaged. Our team at Woodgrove Family Dentists will gently remove the infected nerve and pulp. Then we will carefully clean the tooth from inside and seal it with a durable and natural-looking crown.

When do you need a Root Canal?

Root canal treatment is recommended for patients suffering from a severely damaged or infected tooth. Signs that you may need a root canal include:

  • Severe toothache
  • Pain and swelling in the jaw
  • Abscessed gums
  • Pain when biting or chewing
  • Prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, call our office right away. We offer same-day emergency appointments to help you get the urgent care you need to feel better. You can reach our emergency line at (815) 505-3185.

Is a Root Canal Treatment Painful?

While root canal procedures have the reputation of being painful, most patients report that the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed. The discomfort experienced in the period leading up to seeking dental care is truly painful, not the root canal procedure itself. Without treatment, loss of the tooth is likely, as tooth decay reaching the pulp tissue inside the tooth causes infection.

During your treatment, we will administer local anesthetic to make your experience as comfortable and pain-free as possible. We also offer many comforting amenities to help you relax. Ask about our pillows, blankets, and wireless headphones to make your experience with us rewarding.
