Naperville Endodontic ProceduresRoot Canal Treatment: Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay,infection or inflammation. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need ofdental implants or bridges. At the center of your tooth is pulp. Infection of the pulp can be caused bytrauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures.Endodontic Retreatment: With proper care, most teeth that have had endodontic (root canal)treatment can last as long as other natural teeth. However, in some cases, a tooth that has receivedendodontic treatment fails to heal as expected due to re-infection or other complications.Naperville Apicoectomy: An apicoectomy, also called root end resection, is a surgical procedureintended to remove infection from the root tip and the surrounding tissue. It is necessary when aninfection and inflammation continues after root canal therapy or endodontic retreatment.Cracked Teeth: Cracked teeth display a variety of symptoms, including erratic pain when chewing,possibly with release of biting pressure, or pain when your tooth is exposed to temperature extremes.Digital X-Rays and Microscopic Technology: Using the most advanced dental technology possible is justas important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques.Traumatic Injuries: Dr. Ricks treats a variety of problems that result from traumatic dental injuries, suchas tooth avulsion and dislodged teeth.
