Root Canal

“A great dentist never gets on your nerves”

Root Canal:  Root canal therapy can save a tooth that has been severely decayed or has become infected.  Since VIP focuses on a conservative treatment, when appropriate, we aim to avoid this therapy with a pulp capping treatment.  Pulp capping consists of a medicated cement that is placed in the area close to the nerve, to help sooth the nerve and regenerate a “cushion” extra tooth structure to repair the tooth.

Call the office at (773) 974-3631 to schedule your appointment.

What to expect

Depending on the situation and number of canals, root canals usually take 1-2 visits.  We will apply a topical gel to get your tissue numb and will anesthetize you.  You will be wearing  a rubber around the tooth to isolate it from saliva and to keep you safe from the irrigants and files that we use.  Most people fall asleep during the procedure (yes I said it:) as the procedure is lengthy, but you should not have any pain.  We will temporize your tooth with a filling to make sure it is feeling ok, and will schedule for the next step.
