    Root Canal Treatment In Matteson, IL

    At Progressive Dental & Associates, we regularly perform a root canal endodontic treatment in order to remove infections and save our patients’ teeth. Dr. Durr is an expert at completing the procedure and doing so while keeping patients completely comfortable. Root canals are a common procedure. In fact, every year millions of root canals are performed and, as a result, the need to pull infected teeth is greatly reduced. If you live in the Matteson area and are currently experiencing tooth pain, we invite you to call (708) 980-0110 to schedule an appointment and see if you need a root canal endodontic treatment.

    Why Do Most People Need A Root Canal?

    When a tooth becomes infected, that infection can spread into the center of the tooth. This area is called the dental pulp. Inside of the dental pulp is the nerves, connective tissue, and blood vessels.
    All of the sensitive areas of the tooth are contained here. As such, when the area becomes infected it can be incredibly painful, requiring immediate treatment. We can perform a root canal quickly on people living in and around the 60443 area.

    Why should I have a root canal endodontics treatment?

    If you live in Matteson, IL you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Durr to discuss the health of your teeth, any problems that you may be having and what should be done to heal and protect the tooth. If it appears that a root canal is the best option, we will make this recommendation. If not, we will present a treatment solution that will solve your health issue.
    Overall, a root canal endodontics treatment is extremely effective for saving damaged teeth by removing any infection that may be there. This single treatment makes it possible for millions of teeth to be saved on an annual basis and once it is completed; eating and drinking becomes easy again.

    What About Discomfort?

    We help patients throughout Illinois to feel comfortable during their root canal endodontics procedure by using sedation dentistry. We have a variety of ways that we can eliminate both discomfort and anxiety during a root canal.
    Whether a patient needs to take something ahead of time to relax or medication to numb the specific area that is being worked on, Dr. Durr is an expert at painless dentistry and ensuring that patients are able to enjoy their dental treatments.

    What Are The Advantages Of This Procedure?

    In the past, many people would need to have their teeth pulled if they became severely infected or the dental pulp became inflamed. Now, those same teeth can be saved by performing a root canal. This is a far better option because it keeps the natural tooth in place. This is important for the shape of the face because as teeth fall out the muscles in the face can start to sag. While this isn’t particularly common with the loss of one tooth, it is when several become infected and fall out. By treating and saving an infected tooth, Dr. Durr is helping to preserve our patients’ facial structure.
    Another benefit is that once the root canal has been completed, and the filling or crown is in place; it is possible to eat like normal and without restrictions. Once the infection is gone, and the tooth is strengthened, it will behave like it used to. That makes it possible to bite down with normal force, chew, and maintain normal activities without worrying about the tooth. This helps patients throughout Matteson to get back to return to their busy schedules.
    A restored tooth will look completely natural if a tooth-colored crown or filling is used to restore it. In fact, crowns can be created in the exact shade of the surrounding teeth so that it blends in perfectly. This way no one will know that you ever had a procedure completed. If, in fact, you had a root canal done previously, you may want to have the filling or crown around it replaced with today’s version for an improved appearance.
    If you live in Matteson, IL you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Durr to discuss the health of your teeth, any problems that you may be having and what should be done to heal and protect the tooth. If it appears that a root canal is the best option, we will make this recommendation. If not, we will present a treatment solution that will solve your health issue.

    Staff was very friendly and professional. Dr. Durr was kind and gentle. Did not feel rushed and he answered all of my questions. He even asked permission to touch my teeth because I told him I was having pain. No dentist has ever done that. I am an extremely fearful patient and I felt comfortable and cared for during my visit. Thank you!
