We can help you!

When a tooth has been severely damaged, our dentists may determine that a root canal treatment can prevent the need for its extraction. At Family Dental Care Park Ridge, we are committed to ensuring our treatments are as comfortable and effective as possible, and we are happy to answer all of your questions. 

Family Cosmetic Dentist

Commonly called a root canal, root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that is often recommended if the tooth pulp and nerves become infected or damaged. This may occur if injury or decay reaches deep into the tooth, past the outer enamel layer. 
When left untreated, this type of infection and disease may cause the tooth to die and necessitate tooth extraction. 
To restore the health of the tooth and avoid the need for extraction, our skilled dentist will remove the infected and injured tissues from within the tooth, clean the tooth, and fill it with a medicated material. 
We will then cap the tooth with a restoration, such as a dental crown, to return the tooth to its original shape and structure. In most cases, a root canal can be completed in only one or two comfortable visits to our office.

Root canal treatment has a reputation for being a painful treatment. In reality, however, root canal treatment can often be completed with minimal discomfort thanks to advanced techniques, tools, and anesthesia. Our dentist and entire team work hard to provide you with a pleasant and comfortable experience each time you visit our office.
