Unraveling Root Canals at Magical Smiles in Plainfield, IL

Welcome to Magical Smiles, where we transform daunting dental procedures into manageable and comfortable experiences. Led by Dr. Vineet Sharma, our team is here to guide you through every step of your dental journey, including root canals. Despite common misconceptions, root canals are common procedures that can alleviate pain and save your natural teeth.

Understanding Root Canals

Root canal therapy, often simply referred to as a root canal, is a procedure designed to save a tooth that is severely infected or decayed. During the treatment, our skilled dentist, Dr. Sharma, removes the infected pulp (the soft center of the tooth), cleans the inside of the tooth, and seals it to prevent future infections. Afterward, a dental crown is typically placed over the tooth to strengthen and protect it, restoring its function and appearance.

What Triggers the Need for Root Canals?

Several conditions may necessitate a root canal, with the primary cause being a deep infection in the tooth’s pulp. This infection can result from severe decay, a chip or crack in the tooth, or a dental injury that allows bacteria to seep in. When left untreated, this infection can lead to an abscess or a more widespread infection, causing more severe health problems and often resulting in tooth loss.

Recognizing When to Consult a Dentist

It’s important to consult with a dentist if you experience signs of a tooth infection. These signs may include severe toothache, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold, discoloration of the tooth, swollen or tender gums, or a recurring pimple on your gums. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, don’t hesitate to reach out to Magical Smiles. We’re not just a practice—we’re a family ready to provide the care you need.

I came for an emergency appointment and liked this practice so much that I am making them my regular dental practice. Everyone was very friendly and professional. Dr Sharma did a great job treating my issue and it was easy and painless! I will be recommending this practice to everyone.

The staff is genuinely friendly. Nicole, with whom I had first contact when I made my appointment, and Heather, the dental assistant were both extremely welcoming. Dr. Sharma is so kind and attentive. He communicated with me during the proceedure and put me at ease. He was also patient when numbing my mouth; making sure that I was comfortable before he continued. He called me after my visit to check and find out if I had any questions. When I called the office with a minor concern days after my visit, I received a prompt reply. I am so grateful for the doctor and his staff. I recommend his practice for everyone.

I recently has my four wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Sharma. I cannot say enough good things about him and his staff. I was really nervous but he definitely put me at ease and it was such a smooth experience. His whole staff is so nice, they will definitely take care of you here.

Can not express the amount of CARE and SYMPATHY Dr. Puri gave me without ever seeing me before. I suffered for 8 day under a different dentist. She was BOOKED but said to me, "I can not let someone suffer in pain like you are". I was like a 5 year old with tears and fears. She brushed my head and placed ice on my forehead. Communicated all steps before hand. THAT IS WHAT WE NEED IN A DENTIST. 18 MILLION STARS

My wife and I are here in Illinois visiting old friends. Been having an issue with my teeth and gums. I knew of the problem but was unable to get it taken care of before leaving home in New Mexico. My problem worsened. A friend recommended Dr. Jyoti Puri. I was able to get in due to a cancellation. Staff was great in helping me get my records from New Mexico. Everyone from start to finish was exceptional. My dental issue was worse than I thought. Dr. Puri explained clearly in terms I could understand and presented me with some options. Her care and skills made my procedure as painless as possible. Her surgical assistants Michelle and Griselda also were great with x rays and assisting in the procedure. 5 STARS PLUS! HIGHLY RECCOMMEND
