If your tooth has developed an infection or sustained another injury, our dentist may recommend a root canal to restore it and help you regain your oral health. This endodontic procedure is often the only alternative to a tooth extraction and is generally the preferred option as it will not require you to receive additional care to replace the tooth. Call North Dental Professionals to learn more about root canal therapy in Chicago and Skokie, Illinois, and make an appointment with Dr. Paul Chaiken.
