You only have one set of teeth, so you should do everything possible to keep them. Endodontics is the practice of treating the interior of your teeth with the goal of avoiding extraction. At Southwest Endodontics, we have two locations, one of which is in Geneva IL to provide residents with the services they need to keep their smiles.
We love having a clinic in Geneva that provides endodontic care to locals. Our patients are great, and so is the town. If you live here, you know that Geneva has a perfectly bustling downtown area without the city problems of Chicago. The following are some of the best things to enjoy in and around Geneva.
If you love hiking or biking, the Illinois Prairie Path is a great option. This 62-mile trail runs right through Geneva, making it convenient for you to hop on for as long as you feel like it. This path was the first success of the country’s “Rails to Trails” program. The movement continues today to convert old railroad thoroughfares into hiking and biking trails. A spur of the trail leads to Geneva on the Fox River’s east side.
Every place has a story to tell, and the Geneva History Museum has a passion for relating those local tales. The museum features several exhibits on the rich history of the town, expressed through a variety of media. For instance, the Story Booth lets you hear stories of the town and record your own. Even if you’ve explored all the museum has to offer, don’t forget the numerous events, such as the Brown Bag lunch lecture series offered at various times during the year.
Our services at Southwest Endodontics are treatment options that can help you to avoid losing a damaged tooth. We have experts in this specialty field of dentistry ready to help you with root canals, endodontic surgery, and much more. Learn more about our offerings below.
Do you want a painless procedure that can end your current pain and save your tooth? You may need a root canal. This type of endodontic care uses non-surgical methods to clean painful inflammation and infection from inside a tooth.
At Southwest Endodontics, we use the Gentlewave process to improve our endodontists’ abilities to clean out and sanitize your tooth’s canals. Come see us and benefit from our doctors’ use of high-tech tools, which help us provide better endodontics care for our patients.
Retreatment corrects problems that may appear in a tooth that had previous endodontic work done on it. Usually, this type of care removes bacteria that get into teeth that once had root canals. If you experience a broken crown or filling or have an infection in a treated tooth, you don’t have to have the tooth pulled. Our endodontic retreatment can help you to save it.
Children have very different endodontics needs from their parents. Our endodontists know how to handle the special anatomy of growing and developing children’s teeth. They also help your children to feel at ease during the treatment process. Come see us at Southwest Endodontics if your child’s pediatric dentist recommends specialty care or if they need treatment for a cracked or damaged tooth.
Cracked teeth have a variety of forms and treatments. Saving a cracked tooth may require endodontic care. Visit our Geneva clinic if you notice that you have a crack in one of your teeth. We will do what we can to help.
Traumatic injuries to teeth include cracked or broken teeth. If you have a broken tooth, save the pieces in water or milk and get to the endodontist within half an hour. A break in a tooth that exposes the pulp typically requires endodontic surgery or root canal treatment to correct. Faster treatment increases your chances of keeping all or part of the tooth.
An apicoectomy is a form of endodontic surgery that our doctors perform to treat the inside of a tooth from the root end in the gums. Usually, you have pain or an injury to the tooth that may require extra care beyond non-surgical interventions. The endodontist will let you know if you need a root canal or apicoectomy after an evaluation of your tooth. Our office has equipment for all types of endodontic care.
If you need an endodontist to help you save a tooth, trust our team at Southwest Endodontics. We effectively use the most updated technology to help our patients to keep their smiles. Contact us at our Geneva IL location today if you have tooth pain or an injury to get prompt care.
