Root Canals in Noblesville

Indianapolis Endodontic Treatment

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures that we perform on a daily basis. This very simple procedure is done to save your natural teeth therefore preventing the need for implants or bridges. Each tooth has its own nerve and blood supply that help protect and nourish it. This is at the center of the tooth and is called the pulp. When the pulp of the tooth becomes injured either by deep decay, cracks, trauma, or multiple dental restorations the patient may experience pain in the tooth or swelling of the surrounding tissues. A root canal is simply removing this damaged or diseased pulp tissue, cleaning, shaping, and sealing the tooth. It is basically a filling on the inside of the tooth.

There are a few signs that you may need a root canal, including:

  • Tender or swollen gums
  • Severe pain while chewing
  • Discolored or darkened teeth
  • Prolonged sensitivity to temperature
