Our friendly staff serves the Rolling Meadows, Palatine, Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates and surrounding northwestern suburban area for emergency and general dentistry needs. We perform teeth cleanings, oral exams, root canals and emergency care.
Daily brushing and flossing goes a long way, but you still need a professional teeth cleaning at least every 6 to 12 months. Our hygenists at our Rolling Meadows location catch what your toothbrush cannot.
During teeth cleanings, we remove plaque and tartar that could harm your teeth if left untouched. We also take a close look at your gums to check for swelling, irritation or other indicators of upcoming periodontal or dental issues. It usually takes less than an hour to leave our office with a clean, happy mouth.
First-time visitors to our Rolling Meadows clinic need an oral exam from one of our friendly staffers. We examine your teeth and gums, then record and chart what we see for future use. We especially recommend oral exams before advanced procedures.
The exam includes periodontal probing to inspect your mouth for risks of gum disease. Additionally, you’ll undergo several types of x-rays to check health of your mouth and jaws and look for hidden cavities or wisdom teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a general dentistry practice designed to help badly infected or decaying teeth. In this procedure, we remove nerve and pulp inside the tooth. Once finished, we clean and seal the tooth to prevent spread of infection and abscesses. Although complex, this practice saves teeth from extraction and prevents disease and decay from reaching the rest of your mouth.
Root canals are notoriously uncomfortable because the procedure affects the nerves in your teeth. However, Mike Errico, DDS, and staff do all they can to make you comfortable during the procedure. After your root canal, you’ll likely receive a dental crown for your tooth. See our page about restorative dentistry to learn more about crowns and bridges.
Toothaches & Dental Emergencies
Accidents happen, so our emergency dentists can help fix you up after accidents and sports-related injuries. When it comes to your teeth, you never want to put off addressing emergency problem. Common emergency procedures include extractions and implants to replace lost teeth.
You may not consider them emergencies, but toothaches can be a sign of greater problems. When you experience prolonged dental pain, we recommend making an appointment with us at our Rolling Meadows clinic as soon as possible.
