ROOT CANAL STREETERVILLE, 60611

Root canal treatment is a dental procedure (endodontic therapy) that saves a damaged or diseased tooth. Root canals are used instead of removing a damaged tooth, allowing the patient to maintain their existing bite. This treatment requires the removal of a nerve inside the tooth and replacing the empty root “canal” with a solid filling material that is infection resistant.

A dark-colored tooth generally indicates that the tooth’s nerve is infected and the flow of blood to and from the tooth has stopped. Usually this means the tooth will require a root canal for treatment, though it is possible the tooth will simply “die,” not requiring a root canal to treat the pain.

In order to return the tooth to its natural light color, you might consider a crown, Lumineer veneers or a procedure in which a whitening agent is placed inside the tooth after root canal treatment that whitens the tooth.
