Endodontic Treatment in Elgin, IL
A root canal may be necessary to save a tooth that is cracked, broken, or extensively decayed or infected. When a tooth reaches this point, it is usually a painful situation. However, a root canal from Dr. Sung can both stop the pain and save your tooth.
During a root canal, Dr. Sung removes the live tissue from the interior of the tooth. This tissue includes nerves that carry pain signals. Next, he cleans the inner canal thoroughly and then seals the tooth. Finally, a restoration is placed so your tooth is protected and attractive.
Extraction is often the only alternative to a root canal, but a root canal allows you to keep your natural tooth. Also, modern root canal procedures are not painful. Our team makes sure to keep you comfortable throughout the entire process.
