End the pain, save your tooth
If you’re experiencing tooth pain or have been advised to undergo a root canal, trust Crystal Lake Dental Arts for a procedure that’s as hassle-free as possible.
Benefits of root canals
- Removes the damaged nerve and pulp from an infected or inflamed tooth, alleviating pain and discomfort.
- Stops the spread of infection, protecting other parts of the mouth and body from more serious health issues.
- Helps preserve your natural tooth, maintain your smile, and avoid the need for a prosthetic replacement.
- More affordable than tooth extraction and artificial tooth replacement.
- Allows the treated tooth to function normally for biting and chewing without affecting taste.
Understanding root canal therapy
A root canal is typically needed when the pulp inside your tooth becomes infected or inflamed due to decay, injury, or repeated dental procedures. This treatment involves removing the infected pulp, cleaning the inside of the tooth, and then sealing it to prevent further infection.
With root canal therapy, we aim to relieve pain, save your natural tooth, and restore its function, allowing you to chew pain-free and maintain a natural appearance.
