Root Canal Treatment Benefits

Published on September 27th, 2019

If you are looking to get a root canal in Lakeview, Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park can help you figure out if you are a candidate for the treatment. Even though many people think root canal treatments are painful and thus try to avoid them, there are actually some benefits to getting this treatment. 

 

What Is A Root Canal?

This type of treatment involves the removal of a nerve chamber of a tooth or the bacterial infection within the pulp to help eliminate the root cause of pain and keep the tooth altogether. 

 

The Symptoms

If your tooth pulp is infected, but you aren’t sure, think about if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Swelling in the gum or jaw area around your tooth
  • Frequent toothaches 
  • A bad taste in your mouth, specifically around one tooth
  • Pain when you are chewing

 

The Procedure

The root canal procedure is simpler than one may think. After you are given anesthesia to eliminate discomfort, we create a tine hole to access and remove the pulp. The area is then thoroughly cleaned and then the hole is sealed shut. Lastly, a dental crown is placed over the tooth for protection and longevity. 

 

The Benefits

One of the biggest advantages of a root canal treatment is the elimination of pain that was surrounding your tooth. Other advantages may include:

  • The prevention of abscess formation
  • Stopping the spread of infection to other teeth once the bacteria is removed 
  • Chewing and biting normally

The ability to keep your tooth instead of having a full extraction
