Elgin Endodontics

Elgin root canalsHave you ever heard the phrase ‘I’d rather have a root canal’ to describe something painful or unpleasant? At David A. Rice, D.D.S., we perform root canal (endodontic) therapy routinely for our Elgin dentistry patients and many report minimal discomfort.

St Charles IL root canal procedures have advanced significantly in recent years. For many Illinois root canal patients, the procedure is no worse than getting a filling from your David A. Rice, D.D.S. dental professional.

At David A. Rice, D.D.S., our goal is to help our Bartlett IL, South Elgin, and Wayne root canal patients avoid the necessity of endodontic treatment by providing important dental care. However, if root canal therapy is necessary to preserve a tooth for one of our greater St Charles IL area root canal patients, we provide the most advanced endodontic treatment in Illinois.

How do you know if you need a root canal? You should talk to your David A. Rice, D.D.S. dental professional immediately if you experience tenderness or pain, hot or cold sensitivity, tooth discoloration, tooth injury, gum swelling, gum pain, or lymph node tenderness or drainage. However, for some St Charles IL endodontic patients, there are no symptoms. That is why it is important to visit your local Elgin endodontic dentist regularly for a thorough dental examination and dental cleaning.

Call David A. Rice, D.D.S., at 847-741-2353 to schedule an appointment.
  We are dedicated to the highest standard of dental care.
