When your tooth has become decayed beyond the dentine layer into the pulp region, root canal treatment is needed and it is time to see an endodontist in Downtown Chicago.

What Is An Endodontist?

Endonditists are dentists who specialize in maintaining teeth through endodontic therapy procedures which involve the soft inner tissue of the teeth. Endodontic comes from the word “endo” which means the inside and “odont” which means tooth. Endodontists have committed a minimum of two years of additional education to become an expert in their field of root canal treatment. An endodontist in Downtown Chicago is an expert at saving teeth and is committed to helping you maintain your natural smile for a lifetime.

How Can An Endodontist Downtown Chicago Save My Tooth?

Endodontic treatment also called a root canal, is the most common type of dental procedure to be performed. Inside the tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, there is a soft tissue called pulp. When the pulp becomes inflamed or infected, a root canal should be performed by an endodontist Downtown Chicago. Typically, the pulp can become infected by trauma to the tooth, chips and cracks, decay, or repeated dental procedures. An endodontist will remove the diseased pulp in order to save the tooth from further infection.

What Does Treatment Involve?

During endodontic treatment Downtown Chicago, the inflamed pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is then carefully cleaned, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. The tooth is later restored with a crown or filling for protection. Following the procedure, the tooth will continue to function just like any other tooth.
