  • My overall experience with LJ Dentistry has been wonderful. I've always been reluctant about going to the dentist in the past due to previous bad experiences with other dentist. I can honestly say at LJ Dentistry I've always had pain free excellent experiences. The entire staff makes you feel comfortable and at ease. The staff is also great with children. My daughter had no fear and enjoyed the interaction with the staff. They helped distract her by having her count her teeth. I highly recommend LJ Dentistry.

  • I would highly recommend lj dentistry, from the front desk to all the employees in back they are all very friendly. You can tell that each and every employee knows and cares about what they do. I have had cavities filled and a cap done and while the work was being done I felt no discomfort or pain. My family has been going here for years now and we highly recommend Dr. Jackson for your dental needs.

Root Canal Therapy in Moline, IL

Root Canal Therapy Moline, ILIn the world of dentistry, root canals seem to have the worst reputation. While the root canal procedure is often thought to be painful, did you know that it’s actually an infection that’s causing your pain? Root canal therapy removes that infection and saves your tooth from further damage or extraction. Best of all, it also alleviates your pain.

When Do I Need a Root Canal?

If you feel sensitivity when eating hot, cold, or sweet foods or beverages, it’s an early indicator that you may have a crack, decay, or fracture in your tooth. Contact our office right away and you may be able to relieve the symptoms with a filling. If this condition progresses, it can lead to infection and severe pain, and that’s when our doctors may recommend root canal therapy. Accidents, trauma, or injury to your tooth may also necessitate the need for a root canal.

Does Root Canal Therapy Hurt?

Moline IL Root Canal TherapyModern dentistry has made great advances in the field of root canal therapy, and most patients are surprised at how simple the procedure is. You’ll be numbed with local anesthetic, so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. Numbing will even relieve the pain from your trauma or infection.

One of our doctors will remove the infected or injured nerve through a small hole placed in the top of your tooth. After your nerve is removed, the hole is sealed with a temporary filling and your tooth is allowed time to heal.

After root canal therapy, your tooth is not as strong as it once was, and Dr. Jackson or Dr. Lemon may recommend that your tooth is “rebuilt” and strengthened with a dental filling or crown. Root canal therapy is a great way to save your tooth from extraction and preserve your root and natural tooth structure.
