Root Canals That Alleviate Pain - Not Cause It

A common misconception about root canal therapy is it creates pain. However, the purpose of a root canal is to take away your pain – both present and future. 

If tooth decay reaches the nerve center of the root, the infected nerve will need to be removed to stop the pain and save your tooth. We then fill the area and place a crown on top to protect your tooth, make it functional again, and complete your restoration.

Dr. Mike aims to make treating any root canal in his Shorewood, IL office as painless as possible using a gentle approach. So much so that many patients don’t even know they’ve had a root canal until after he’s told them!
