Lincoln Park Root Canal Dentist Saves Damaged Smiles

by

Modern dental technology allows patients to retain their natural teeth after severe dental damage. This is hugely beneficial for the patient for both aesthetic and functionality reasons. One treatment that is indispensable to restorative dentists is the root canal.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. It’s probably something along the lines of, “ugh” or “root canals are the worst!” Trust me, our Lincoln Park dental team has heard it all before. But we are here to tell you that, in truth, the root canal can be a smile saving procedure.

Let’s say that you have sustained serious dental damage. Maybe your tooth was broken in an accident, or maybe an oral infection has worked its way to the core of your tooth. When you are in this dire situation, root canal therapy can restore your tooth and bring your smile back from the brink.

During root canal therapy, our dentist:

1. Isolates the point of infection or damage

2. Removes all compromised dental material, all the way down through the dental core, which includes the tooth root and nerves

3. Sterilizes the remaining dental tissue in order to minimize the risk of re-infection. During treatment, our dentist will preserve as much healthy tooth material as possible, because this helps to stabilize your post-treatment smile.

4. Finally, our dental team will restore your damaged tooth. We will fill it and cap it with a restoration. When this portion of treatment is done, your tooth will look and feel natural again.

After a successful root canal the patient is able to return to his or her normal daily routine. You’ll be able to eat, drink, and speak easily. And, importantly, your smile will look restored, fresh, and intact.

If you have sustained dental trauma, or if you have an advanced dental infection, please seek treatment as soon as possible. Our Lincoln Park root canal dentists can help you!

If you look in the mirror, and you don’t love the smile that is staring back at you, it might be time to do something about! Thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry, our Lincoln Park cosmetic dentists can now treat a variety of common aesthetic dental issues.

One treatment that we use in order to refine smiles is Invisalign. In this short article we are going to be talking about what Invisalign can do!

The Invisalign system essentially uses clear orthodontic mouthpieces, rather than traditional metal brackets and wires, in order to move teeth. Invisalign gives you the ability to transform your smile without using metal at all.

You might be a good candidate for Invisalign treatment if you want to change any of the following things about your smile.

1. You want to straighten crooked or crowded teeth. Many people suffer from dental crowding. You may have crooked/crowded teeth in just section of your smile, or your mouth may be looking and feeling cramped. Invisalign aligners will move your teeth so that they are evenly spaced.

2. You want to close gaps between your teeth. Large gaps between teeth can make your smile look less symmetrical. Using Invisalign, our dental team can shift your gapped teeth closer together, so that your smile is seamless.

3. You want to correct bite problems. Invisalign is also capable of correcting overbites, underbites, and crossbites, Fixing these issues not only makes your smile more attractive, it also gives your mouth a better chance of staying healthy as you age.

Take a look around our website to learn even more about Invisalign—what it does, how it works, and whom it can help. And remember, you can always call our Lincoln Park Invisalign dentists to schedule a consultation and to get additional information about cosmetic treatments in general.
