Benefits Of A Root Canal Treatment

Posted on September 20th, 2019 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

Contrary to popular belief, root canal treatments are virtually painless, leaving you with less discomfort during recovery than if you had the natural tooth extracted. Our Chicago dentists are ready to help you feel some relief after your root canal.

The Process

A root canal treatment consists of removing the inflamed or infected pulp and cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth. Once this is complete, the tooth is filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called “gutta-percha.” Lastly, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling to add protection, allowing the tooth to function like any other one.

The Advantages

While there are many reasons to receive a root canal treatment, it’s also important to know why saving the natural tooth is the smarter choice versus extracting it. Some benefits to getting a root canal treatment include:

  • Pain-Free Procedure: The treatment is painless due to modern techniques and effective anesthesia. Patients who receive a root canal are six times more likely to describe it as painless than those who have their tooth extracted.
  • Efficient And Cost-Effective: Most dental insurance plans cover the root canal treatment. It also takes less time and is more efficient than a tooth extraction that requires follow-up appointments and other cosmetic procedures.
  • Appealing Results: Your results will be visually appealing as crowns function and look like natural teeth. We can improve your smile and boost your self-confidence after the root canal treatment is finished.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
