Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment diagram | Dentist Aurora ILRoot canals relieve pain from an infected tooth and relieve symptoms associated with inflammation caused by infection.  

Root Canal Procedure

We complete root canals under local anesthesia and keep your tooth completely numb throughout your procedure. We use precision rotary endodontic instruments, resulting in the least invasive treatment possible. Both Dr. Wang and Dr. Ma are experienced with root canal therapy and with providing gentle dentistry for every procedure.

What to Expect After a Root Canal Procedure

It is normal to have some post-procedure discomfort or sensitivity for a couple of days after treatment, and this can usually be controlled with over-the-counter pain medicine. Within a few days, sensitivity should subside dramatically, and within a week, you should feel like yourself again. After proper time for healing, we will have a follow-up appointment and place a restoration to seal and protect your tooth.

If swelling or pain persists, we are here to help! Call our dentist office in Aurora, IL right away and we will evaluate your condition and make sure your tooth is healing properly.

Sedation Dentistry at Our Aurora, IL Dentist Office

If you feel nervous about having a root canal, you are not alone. Many patients feel the same way you do. We offer nitrous oxide sedation to promote relaxation during your appointment. Let us know if you would like nitrous oxide for your procedure.
