How can root canal treatment performed at Wyse Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Bloomington, IL, be done with little discomfort to you?
Root Canal Therapy Offers Many Benefits
Provides Pain Relief
Root canal treatment can immediately relieve intense pain and sensitivity caused by chewing, biting, and drinking.
Saves Your ToothA root canal treatment performed by our skilled Bloomington, IL, dentists can strengthen a damaged tooth, clean out the pulp, and save it from being extracted.
Prevents Need for Dental Implant Surgery
Instead of extracting the tooth and replacing it with a dental implant, our doctors can repair it with a natural-looking crown. This not only restores your bite, but allows you to avoid an invasive placement procedure.
Protects Your Health
A root canal does not protect just your tooth. If a bacterial infection spreads, it can enter your gum tissue, jawbone, and bloodstream.
Here's What Root Canal Treatment Looks Like
I'm Nervous about Root Canal Procedure Pain
Root canal procedures have a bad reputation because the procedure was somewhat uncomfortable many years ago. This is no longer the case. According to studies published in the International Endodontic Journal:
Drs. Chrisman and Wyse can combine local anesthesia with relaxing sedation dentistry at their family friendly Bloomington, IL, practice. This can ensure you are deeply comfortable and will experience little to no pain during your root canal procedure.

Is a Root Canal Right for You?
Dental infection is the most common reason that our Bloomington, IL, dentists recommend a root canal. You are likely a candidate for a root canal if you are experiencing any of these signs of infection:
- Toothache that worsens with pressure or cold temperatures
- Throbbing pain along your jaw and into your ears
- Sores, or abscesses, on your gums
- Dark stains inside your tooth
- Chronic bad breath
Occasionally, root canal therapy, also called endodontic therapy, can repair a cracked tooth if the crack does not extend past the gum line. Dr. Wyse and Dr. Chrisman can use advanced digital x-rays to make sure a root canal is suitable for you. Endodontic therapy is typically the most efficient, affordable, and conservative way to address dental infection.
What to Expect During a Root Canal
Day of Procedure
"...a root canal generally involves little more than a gentle sensation of pressure."
Recovery Is Short
You can rest at home or go back to work right after your procedure is done. You might feel some minor sensitivity in the treated tooth for a few days, but non-prescription pain meds should help. Brush and floss normally to keep the area clean. You might want to avoid using the tooth for chewing until your permanent crown is placed at a later appointment.
