Endodontic Treatment for Homer Glen IL
Our endodontic treatments include multiple services that reduce the need for dental extraction. For instance, for most of our patients who need root canal treatment, the only alternative is to have the dentist pull the tooth. Root canal treatment can save the tooth and your smile.
Root canals and endodontic retreatment both apparent infection from inside a tooth in an effort to save the tooth. Both procedures only cause as much discomfort during healing as having a cavity filled. Plus, root canal or retreatment relieves the pain for many patients with inflamed pulp.
Our endodontists also can perform surgery. The most common is an apicoectomy, which requires the doctor to access the canals inside a tooth from the root end beneath the gums. This procedure can save a tooth that cannot have root canal treatment done on it due to complex internal anatomy or to reach infection at the root tip.
Traumatic tooth treatment includes saving teeth that you may have knocked out or cracked.
Pediatric endodontics is a service not all endodontists offer. Children have teeth at various stages of growth, and a pediatric endodontist needs to perform specific procedures not done on adults to preserve baby teeth. Saving baby teeth allows permanent teeth to follow the path of the baby teeth and emerge correctly.
