Root Canal Mount Prospect

3 Reasons why we believe you shouldn't be afraid of a root canal 

Do you worry about your routine dental visits? Has a previous experience made you afraid of the dentist and what they might find? Do you especially fear having a root canal in Mount Prospect? Have you actually postponed getting this procedure done simply because you’re afraid it will hurt? Relax, you’re not alone. The truth is, however, there are three very good reasons not to be afraid of a root canal.


Why should you stop worrying?

There’s no doubt a root canal is a more invasive dental procedure, but the end result is infinitely better than not getting it done at all. Here’s why:

  1. A local anesthesia effectively prevents you from feeling any pain throughout the procedure. Your dentist will also recommend treatment for after the anesthesia wears off to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during the post healing process. Keep in mind, however, that it is extremely important that you are committed to following your dentist’s post care instructions to ensure the best possible outcome.
  2. Teeth in need of a root canal are already in bad shape, and if you need one, you are probably already in a lot of pain. Unfortunately, dental infection and tooth decay are not going to go away without intervention, and both the pain and the tooth will continue to get worse. Additionally, continuing to neglect the need for a root canal may actually affect your oral health and overall physical well-being. Potential problems that can arise include severe neck and facial swelling, drainage problems and bone loss.
  3. A root canal not only enables your dentist to get rid of the infection and decay that is causing your pain, but it also provides an opportunity to save your natural tooth before it becomes too damaged.


What should you do if you need a root canal?

For starters, contact a dentist today to schedule an appointment. If you live in the Chicago area, Des Plaines dentist, Dr. Thomas Meyer of the Meyer Dental Group is an excellent choice for root canal treatment. He and his staff are highly trained and experienced dental professionals. They understand your fears and will carefully explain the procedure to you.

The important thing to remember is that this infection will not go away without treatment. Let a dentist help you get rid of the pain and infection so you and your teeth feel better again.


Save a tooth with a root canal

Root canals are a treatment we offer at the Meyer Dental Group which repairs and helps to save a badly infected or decayed tooth. We perform root canal when a tooth’s nerve has been damaged or is infected.

Both the pulp and the nerve are removed, the cavity is cleaned and filled and sometimes we fit a crown so that the tooth looks as good as new. It does take a couple of visits to our dentist but is well worth it as it avoids extraction.

Restoring is better than extraction

We believe our general dental treatments offer the best way to keep your original teeth and make any newly added teeth look natural. They will help to restore your smile and your relationships with your friends and work colleagues.


Here’s why it’s not so bad

We firmly believe that a visit to the dentist is not always a walk in the park, nor do we claim that it always is. However, the risks and consequences associated with avoiding dental visits shouldn’t be an option when you want to lead a long, healthy life. Stay healthy, look great, sleep better, avoid pain, and live longer.
