New Lenox Root Canal Treatment

Root Canal Treatment In Mokena and New Lenox


At Nelson Ridge Family Dental, we can offer you many options when it comes to decayed and infected teeth. One such option is having a root canal treatment performed. When saving your tooth from having to be extracted is of the utmost importance, trust Dr. Paul Etchison and his team of dedicated dental professionals. One common misconception about having root canal treatment is that it can be quite painful. However, for most patients, it is no more painful than having a filling placed in a tooth. If you are someone who experiences anxiety during dental appointments we can accommodate you. During root canal treatment you may choose to be sedated to help to relax and remain calm during the procedure.

Benefits of having a root canal treatment:

  • Ability to keep the tooth
  • Relieve pain associated with decaying teeth
  • Stop the spread of infection
  • Restore function

What should I expect from a Root Canal?


When you choose to have your root canal treatment performed at Nelson Ridge Family Dental in the Laraway Ridge Plaza, you can enjoy the latest technology in a comfortable and safe environment. During the procedure Dr. Etchison will remove the nerve and the pulp from your damaged tooth. He will then clean and disinfect the interior of the tooth, fill it with a rubber like substance called Gutta Percha, and then fit it with a crown to restore functionality. If you are experiencing extreme tooth pain, sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, or swelling in gums around the tooth contact us today to determine if a root canal treatment is right for you.


At Nelson Ridge Family Dentistry, all root canal treatment patients are treated in our state-of-the-art facility and enjoy the following amenities:

  • Feel free to enjoy a complimentary beverage while you wait in our well-appointed waiting room.
  • Our patients enjoy watching wall and ceiling mounted flat screen televisions during their appointments.
  • Micro-leather examination chairs with memory foam for unmatched comfort during treatment.
  • Warm Towels provide a refreshing sensation to patients after being treated by the doctor.
