When it comes to dental issues, you'll want to see your dentist, but in the event of a root canal infection then you will want to see a root canal expert - an endodontist. An endodontist is a dentist that has additional experience and training in terms of providing root canal care. If you happen to be experiencing tooth pain in Bolingbrook, then our endodontist Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC is here to provide you with the root canal therapy or any additional treatment that you might need in order to recover.
Root canal infections often share similar symptoms of cavities, but they tend to be more painful. This is usually because the nerve ending located in the infected tooth is also inflamed. It is also because of the nerve ending in other aspects of the center of the tooth that make root canal treatments delicate and difficult. This is why you will want to see an endodontist. An endodontist has at least two years’ additional experience with root canal therapy and related treatments. The goal of root canal therapy is to eliminate the infection while salvaging as much of the tooth as possible. Because this will consider a good deal of oral surgery, Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC will be sure to provide you with anesthetic to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible. No matter what you need, Dr. Ricks is here to provide it for you, especially if it involves tooth pain in Bolingbrook.
If you happen to experience oral pain, then the best thing you can do is to make sure that you get emergency dental care. The longer you wait to have such issues addressed, the more likely the infection will spread and the more damage it can do. Your best bet is to see an endodontist as soon as possible in order to rectify the problem and to treat the infection immediately. If you are experiencing tooth pain in Bolingbrook, then our endodontist Linda Ricks, DDS, MS, PC can perform the necessary procedures needed to restore your dental health.
