Orland Park Dentist Addresses Key Concerns About Root Canal Therapy

Written by Dr. Zaibak on Feb 7, 2017

Our Tinley Park dentists understand that dental treatment can seem stressful and overwhelming for many dental patients. Our goal is to help you get the care you need in a way that is convenient, calm, and comfortable.

One treatment that causes anxiety for many people is root canal therapy. In this short article, we are responding to some common concerns that dental patients have about root canal. Let’s get started!

“It is going to be painful”

Thanks to advances in restorative dentistry as well as sedation treatments, root canal therapy can now be completed comfortably and conveniently. Our team offers a number of numbing and sedation options so that you can get the dental care you need without unnecessary pain and discomfort.

“Root canal will make my tooth look fake”

Once our dental team has removed the infected and damaged dental material from your tooth, we will restore your tooth using fillings and/or customized restorations. Our team utilizes metal-free, natural looking fillings and restorations, so, once completed, your tooth will be functional and look natural and attractive! You don’t have to worry about your tooth looking metallic or fake, post-treatment.

“I’m going to be out of commission for a long time”

Once your tooth is restored, you should be able to jump back into your regular daily routine in a short period of time. Some patients experience some sensitivity to hot and cold substances as they adjust to their new restorations, but this generally subsides in a matter of days. Our dental team works hard to make sure that root canal therapy fits into your busy schedule.

If you have concerns or questions about root canal treatment, our Orland Park root canal dentists are here to help you. Give us a call to speak to a member of our team and to schedule a personal consultation with our dentist!
