Root Canal Therapy in Albany Park, Chicago & Des Plaines, IL
What is Root Canal Therapy?
Root canal therapy is a procedure where a dentist removes bad bacteria from the pulp of a tooth. That bacteria forms inside of the tooth for many reasons. Poor dental health is one of the most common causes. Also, when someone does not fix a cracked tooth, it is easier for bad bacteria to enter and attack the tooth from the inside out. An untreated infection inside of a tooth makes it painful, discolored and could eventually lead to the loss of that tooth.
After root canal therapy is completed, you will have a better chance of preserving the original tooth. In some cases, you may need to have a crown placed on top of the affected tooth to cover up any imperfections or discoloration.
