Eliminate oral pain and save your smile with Root Canal Treatment

Dealing with a toothache that won’t go away? Don’t worry. We can save you from pain and still keep your tooth intact. At Washington Street Dentistry in Indianapolis, Indiana, we offer root canal therapy to save you from the wrath of excruciating tooth pain. Unfortunately, many patients are terrified about the talk of a root canal. But as you will find out, the fears surrounding root canals are based on misinformation. Modern advancements in diagnosis and treatment have made root canal therapy one of dentistry’s most straightforward and pain-free treatments.

When is a root canal needed?

Tooth pain is one of the tell-tale signs that you need to undergo endodontic therapy. Others include:

  • Tooth sensitivity, especially to hot and cold foods
  • A tooth that looks darker than the rest
  • Swelling gums
  • Pain when eating
  • Fever

If you are experiencing any of the above, it may indicate that your tooth has an infection. If left untreated, the infection may cause tooth loss, gum deterioration, and worse, seep into the bloodstream and damage vital organs such as the liver, heart, and kidney. To save your tooth, stop the pain, and curb the infection from spreading, book an appointment with Dr. Matthew Church for root canal treatment.

The root canal procedure

After Dr. Church examines your tooth and establishes that it can be saved with endodontic therapy, the next step is to numb the area near the affected tooth with anesthesia to ensure the procedure is comfortable and painless. We also offer sedation dentistry for patients who suffer from dental fear and anxiety.

Next, Dr. Church makes an incision to access the inside of the tooth, removes the diseased pulp, and cleans the internal area and root canals to eliminate any lurking bacteria. After a thorough cleaning, we seal the tooth with a rubber-like material to prevent future infections. Finally, we cover your treated tooth with a dental crown to restore its resilience and appearance.

Save your tooth with root canal therapy!

If you have a nagging toothache, the wait-and-see approach will only make matters worse. Instead, take action today and dial (317) 333-6788 to book an appointment with Washington Street Dentistry for root canal therapy.

I always have a great experience when I go to Washington Street Dentistry. The staff is very professional and Dr. Church is very personable. I’ve had fillings and a root canal and didn’t feel a thing!
