Have you completed your course of root canal therapy, only to be experiencing the pain of infection in the exact same site of your procedure? As much as we want to believe in the skill and knowledge of professional dentists, not all dental practices are created equal. General dentists are trained primarily to care for only the dentin, or the surface of your teeth in ways such as cleaning, filling cavities, and repairing damaged teeth which are chipped or cracked. While these skills are important, they are a far cry apart from the necessary training and education needed to provide root canal therapy successfully. For the best in root canal therapy, be sure to take your needs to your local West Chicago endodontist
. Our team at the offices of Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC can explain to you how root canal procedures can go awry, and how our team of root canal specialists work to insure these do not happen to you.
West Chicago Root Canals
Root canal therapy is more than a simple surface dental procedure such a cavity filling or a deep cleaning, but is in fact a form of common oral surgery. This procedure involves making an incision into your infected tooth, and working to remove the infected matter and stop the infection from coming back with medication and a permanent dental filling. Despite this generalization, each patient’s root canal infection is different, varying in degrees of severity and spread of infection, as well as their chances of reinfection due to other medical and oral health problems. Root canal therapy often fails due to a bad filling, or simply not working hard enough to remove the infection on a microscopic level, or simply failing to plan accordingly. At your trusted West Chicago endodontist
our treatment begins with careful scrutiny of the site of infection with the latest technology to insure that our doctors can closely examine and study your root canal for treatment that will truly work to return your smile to a picture of perfect health.
If you have had a round of root canal therapy from a general dentist that has failed to completely eradicate the infection, our team of root canal experts at your professional West Chicago endodontist
can give you the root canal therapy you need to regain your oral health. If you have a mild case of return infection, an endodontic retreatment from Dr. Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC can work to replace your root canal filling and remove any remaining infected matter. In more severe cases, an apicoectomy or a root end resection may be necessary to end your oral infection. With state of the art offices that work to keep your procedure as comfortable as it is effective, you can rest easy knowing your smile is in the best hands with endodontist specialist Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC.
