Want to save your natural tooth? Over 15 million teeth are saved every year with root canal therapy. A root canal is a procedure that is used to fix teeth that are infected or badly decayed. When possible, patients should always consider treatments to save their teeth. Dr. Frederic Mrugala, with offices in Westmont and Hickory Hills, IL, offers root canal treatments to the patients he serves.

Root Canal TherapyThe Effects of Tooth Loss

You should never get a tooth removed because you think it's more cost-effective or easier. Saving your tooth is always the best option. Missing teeth can ruin your smile, cause other teeth to shift out of place, and affect your ability to chew food. It can also cause speech problems, facial sagging, and bone loss.

When a Root Canal is Needed

A root canal is needed when the pulp of the tooth is infected or inflamed. The infection or inflammation can have numerous causes: a crack or chip in the tooth or deep dental decay. Furthermore, a tooth injury may damage the pulp even if the tooth does not have any visible cracks or chips. If the inflammation or infection is left untreated, it can lead to an abscess or cause tooth pain.

Root Canal Procedure

In most cases, a dental practitioner will perform a root canal while you’re under local anesthesia. During the procedure, your dental provider will remove the pulp inside the tooth. Next, the dentist will clean and shape the root canals seal the tooth. Afterward, you will return to your dentist, who will place a permanent dental crown on the tooth to protect it and restore it to full function.

Benefits of Treatment

Root canal treatment will relieve your discomfort and improve your well-being. With modern technologies and anesthetics, a root canal is no more uncomfortable than having a filling placed. Root canals help patients maintain their natural smile, continue to eat their favorite foods, and limit the need for ongoing dental work. With proper care, root-canal-treated teeth can last a lifetime.
