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 dentist...in the best possible way. I am so happy we found you and so thankful that you are following your soul's purpose, Dr. Stopka! ♡

When patients hear about a root canal, they often think it would be a painful procedure. However, root canal therapy is not painful, it relieves the pain of an infected tooth for Burr Ridge area patients. Root canal therapy, or “endodontic therapy,” is done to eliminate the pain and to help patients keep their natural tooth when certain situations arise.

How is the root canal procedure performed?

A root canal procedure involves the removal of the dental pulp inside of the tooth. The dental pulp is a mass of tissues that include the blood supply and nerves. When they are affected, they can result in a toothache that can be resolved in one of two ways – root canal therapy or extraction.

When might a patient need root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy is often done to keep the natural tooth structure when the dental pulp is affected. Common situations that may warrant root canal therapy include:

  • An abscess
  • Injury to the tooth
  • An infection of the dental pulp
  • An extremely large cavity

Which patients are candidates for root canal therapy?

Root canal therapy can be performed for patients of all ages to avoid having to remove the natural tooth. It can also eliminate the need for a denture, dental implant, or a dental bridge. Patients can determine if they may need this treatment by scheduling a consultation and initial evaluation with our dental team.
