The Benefits of Root Canal Treatment

Posted on June 14th, 2013 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

The term “root canal” generally has a negative association – it occurs when bacteria inside the mouth attacks the dental pulp (the soft tissue in the center of the tooth). Treatment involves removing the nerves in the dental pulp and replacing it with a solid infection-resistant filling. We know, it doesn’t sound very great, does it? Although the procedure is something people rarely look forward to, it does have its benefits.
The most obvious benefit of the procedure is eliminating the infection, therefore relieving pain. Many believe the procedure itself will be painful, but with technological advances dentists can ensure the patient will experience no pain, and in fact feel the effects shortly after the treatment.
Root canal treatment also saves your original tooth, whereas the alternative solution, tooth extraction, requires a new tooth in its place. These new teeth sometimes do not fit properly and can cause other teeth to shift. Without a crown, the new tooth is susceptible to bacteria and can break.
In order to obtain the best results from root canal treatment, it is important to follow the after-care instructions provided by your dentist.
If you are experiencing excruciating tooth pain, don’t wait and don’t be afraid – Art of Modern Dentistry offers treatment while providing you with the utmost comfort and relaxation. Call us today at (773) 904-0748 or schedule an appointment online!

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.
