Root Canal Treatments

Have you been living with a toothache? How about a tooth that is sensitive to hot, cold or sweet sensations? Your tooth could be infected, and instead of just trying to live with it, call Advocate Dental of Palatine at 847-359-8732. Our dentists, Dr. George Skoog or Dr. Alla Shtilman, can provide you with a root canal treatment in Palatine, Illinois.

When the pulp and nerves of a tooth have become severely infected or damaged, root canal treatment is often the recommended method to help preserve the tooth. Without root canal treatment, the tooth will most likely die and need to be extracted. Root canal treatment is a type of endodontic therapy that removes infected, damaged and injured tissues within the tooth. Root canal treatment also involves cleaning the tooth and filling it with a medicated material to renew the health of the tooth. Once the treatment is completed, our dentists will cap the tooth with the appropriate dental restoration, usually a dental crown, to restore its original structure and appearance. A root canal usually can be completed in one or two appointments, so you can get back to a healthy smile quickly!

Many people believe that receiving root canal treatment can be extremely painful or uncomfortable, but that is not the case! Root canal treatment involves very little discomfort due to advancement in sedation and numbing techniques available in dental offices. Our dentists and team will work together with you to help ensure you have a comfortable visit. We are dedicated to you, and we will do whatever we can to restore your good oral health.

Patient Reviews

Dr. Skoog is very dedicated to his work and the well-being of his patients. On two different circumstances he was able to squeeze me in when he had a fully booked day. He is very good with understanding a patient’s apprehension of dentists. 🙂

- Sandy S.

So appreciative to Dr. Skoog for taking care of my husband’s terrible toothache during the holiday season. We are not patients of Dr. Skoog as we live out of state. He stayed late on a Saturday to alleviate my husband’s pain. We can’t thank him enough! Highly recommend.

- Ann M.

Great care! The office is usually on time or early. Dr Skoog is very good and offers a lot of services eliminating the need to go to multiple providers which saves time. All staff is professional and friendly as well they make you feel like your their close friend.
