Root Canal Considerations


While you’re considering that root canal treatment we proposed, I’d like to go over the benefits of this procedure and why your decision must come soon.
First of all, your comfortable days may be numbered. The damaged nerve has a good chance of becoming infected. As abscess sets in, you’re facing the toothache of your life. Even worse–the tooth will be lost without treatment. Let’s assume you opt to go ahead before pain brings you in for emergency care.
Through an opening in the tooth, we clean inside the root to remove the damaged nerve or pulp. This may take more than one appointment, depending on the curvature of the canal. When we’re satisfied it’s free of debris, we fill the tooth with a natural substance and seal the tooth back up. Your tooth is now “non-vital”-without nerves, but still nourished by surrounding tissues. Finally we cast impressions for a permanent restoration to protect the tooth.
Some people think a root canal is an arduous alternative, physically and economically, to extraction. It’s not. During the procedure, you’ll be numb as you would for any other treatment. And as for your pocketbook, consider the cost of bridgework or a partial denture to replace the lost tooth.
Very truly yours,
F. Nikoo Daftary, D.D.S.

 your best options in front of you.
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.
