Review by Karrie L.
Janet S. Stopka, DDS, PC - reviews
Thank you thank you. I love this practice. I'm so thankful for Dr. Stopka and her expertise. There are not many mercury free dentists in the south suburbs. The entire staff has been great. I find Nancy to be one of the friendliest people to work a front desk in my life. Always a pleasure to call the office. And Gail was wonderful with our 6 and 4 year olds for their first appointments. She explained everything she was going to do first and the boys had a great time in the chair. Randi was also so patient as my boys picked out a toy from the Treasure Chest (decisions, decisions, you know...).

I love Dr. Stopka's passion for her clients health and wellness. She is not your run of the mill the best possible way. I am so happy we found you and so thankful that you are following your soul's purpose, Dr. Stopka! ♡

At the practice of Janet S. Stopka DDS, PC in Burr Ridge, Illinois, patients have access to services they need to maintain a healthy smile. When infection affects the inner portion of the tooth called the dental pulp, it can pose a serious problem for the natural tooth and its overall health. This is when Dr. Janet Stopka encourages patients to consider the benefits of undergoing root canal therapy.


This procedure, often referred to as endodontic therapy, t involves the removal of the dental pulp from within the tooth. The dental pulp houses the blood supply and nerves. When removed, it deadens the tooth and eliminates the sensation of pain. During root canal therapy, the dentist accesses the dental pulp, removes it, and disinfects the area. Then, the tooth is filled with gutta percha and sealed. In many cases, patients may have a dental crown made to cover the tooth and offer it an extra layer of protection.


The primary purpose of root canal therapy is to save the structure of the tooth. While the procedure deadens it, it keeps the tooth in place and eliminates the need for further services such as tooth replacement with dental implants, bridges, or dentures. Saving the natural tooth is important for the health of the smile as well as function and beauty. Root canal therapy addresses the infection. The alternative to root canal therapy is extraction.


Dr. Janet Stopka assists patients in her state-of-the-art practice and encourages individuals to consider visiting with her to learn more about procedures such as root canal therapy. Her practice is conveniently located at 16 W 289 83rd Street in Burr Ridge, Illinois and can be reached by calling 630 756-5844.
