Root Canals

Find Toothache Relief in Fishers

toothache relief with root canal therapy in Indianapolis and CarmelEach one of your teeth contains a pulp chamber. Nerves travel from your pulp chamber down small canals in your tooth roots. Sometimes the pulp chamber in your tooth can become infected. When the tooth infection reaches your nerves it can cause a serious, agonizing toothache. At Dental Care Today in Fishers (just east of Carmel), we can solve this problem and save your tooth using a root canal.

Root canals relieve the suffering of patients dealing with a severe toothache. Before root canal therapy, dentists had to extract teeth when the pulp chamber became infected. Root canal therapy allows us to save your tooth and protect it from future infection. Dr. Behner has the skill and the experience to clean out the infection in your pulp chamber and ease your toothache. With root canal therapy, our patients can feel comfortable again.

The Root Canal Procedure

root canals for a toothache with a Fishers dentist Indianapolis

  • First Dr. Behner will remove the infected tissue in your tooth.
  • Next, your dentist will clean out and disinfect the affected area of your tooth.
  • Once your tooth is sterilized and the infection has been been completely cleared out, Dr. Behner will apply a special antibiotic and seal your tooth again.
  • Root canals are topped with our beautiful, high quality porcelain crowns.

Do Root Canals Hurt?

Many patients expect root canals to be very painful. What these patients don’t realize is that modern dentistry has come a long way. Thanks to the numbing medication we use you shouldn’t have any severe pain during your root canal procedure. You may experience some discomfort once the procedure is done, but nothing so severe that an over the counter pain reliever can’t help.

For patients anxious about having a root canal done, sedation dentistry is a popular option. Sedation dentistry relieves the anxiety associated with a root canal procedure and relieves tooth sensitivity. Our sedation dentistry treatments in Indianapolis are popular for patients receiving a root canal, because sedation dentistry treatments allow them to feel completely comfortable in the chair.

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!
