Root Canal Therapy From Your Dentists in South Elgin & Sleepy Hollow
Root canals have a reputation for being one of the most unsavory experiences in life. However, at Brar Dentistry in South Elgin and Sleepy Hollow, we know better! In fact, the truth is that the root canal experience is very similar to having a routine filling performed, thanks to our highly skilled dentists and modern anesthesia.
What Is Root Canal Therapy?
A procedure that enables dentists to save a tooth whose nerve is damaged due to decay or infection, this procedure involves the removal of the tooth pulp, along with decay and bacteria, and filling the area with special dental material to restore its normal function and feel.
At Brar Dentistry, we recommend using this procedure to save a tooth whenever possible to both maintain your smile and to remove any existing infection before it spreads to nearby teeth. We will often suggest that patients who experience a root canal treatment seriously consider covering it with a dental crown to provide the tooth with additional strength and support.
How Should A Tooth That’s Undergone A Root Canal Be Cared For?
As with your natural teeth, a tooth that’s undergone root canal therapy should be carefully maintained with diligent oral hygiene practices. Ensure that you’re brushing twice and flossing once daily, seeing us for regular checkups and cleanings, and doing your best to eat a nutritious diet that’s low in sugar.
If you’re in need or root canal therapy or suspect that you may be, call Brar Dentistry today and we’ll ensure that we see you as soon as possible!
