Where can I get Bourbonnais root canal treatment?
When a tooth is severely compromised by deep decay or traumatic injury, your dentist may recommend root canal therapy. A root canal can save your damaged tooth and offer you relief from the symptoms of a toothache. At Frederick P. Waldschmidt DDS, your provider of Bourbonnais root canal treatment, we use state-of-the-art technology and treatment methods to keep you comfortable and relaxed while performing this highly effective procedure.
A root canal may be the most effective form of treatment if there is irreversible damage or decay to the root of your tooth. Underneath the outermost biting surface of your tooth is a layer of core tissues referred to as the dental pulp. Dental pulp plays the important role of providing nutrients to your tooth when it is first developing, but once your tooth is fully matured, it no longer requires dental pulp to remain functional. A deep cavity or fracture allows bacteria to seep in and infect the dental pulp. Dead or damaged tooth pulp causes increased pressure and blood flow, which can become painful over time. If you are experiencing a toothache, which may be accompanied by swelling around the damaged tooth and fever, it is important to see your dentist right away. During your Bourbonnais root canal treatment, your dentist removes the dead or damaged dental pulp, cleans and shapes the pulp chamber, then fills the tooth with inert materials to prevent subsequent infection. Root canal treatment is 95% effective and a tooth that has been treated with a root canal can go on to remain healthy and functional throughout your life.
