Are you experiencing the excruciating pain that results from a severely decayed or infected tooth? If so, our dentists and team are here to help you by providing root canal treatment in Fishers, Indiana!
Root canal treatment is generally needed when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected and the pulp of the tooth becomes decayed. This results in the following symptoms:
- Severe toothache when you chew or apply pressure to that specific tooth
- Darkening of the tooth
- Prolonged sensitivity or pain when you eat or drink something hot or cold
- Tenderness and swelling in the nearby area
- A recurring pimple on the nearby gums
Dr. Cynthia Becker and Dr. Erin Rake ask that you come into My Dental Care Family Dentistry as soon as possible if you are experiencing these symptoms. If you do not, the swelling could spread to other areas of your body, you could lose bone along the tip of the tooth’s root or drainage problems could occur. Root canal treatment has the reputation of being painful, but our team is here to give you the best experience possible by providing a painless treatment that will eliminate the discomfort you are feeling. If you are concerned about the health of one of your teeth, call our office at 317-849-0999 to plan your visit.
