What Is a Root Canal?

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, with well over 14 million every year.

At the center of your tooth is the pulp. A pulp is a collection of blood vessels that helps to build the surrounding tooth. Infection of the pulp can be caused by trauma to the tooth, deep decay, cracks and chips, or repeated dental procedures. Symptoms of the infection can be identified as visible injury or swelling of the tooth, sensitivity to temperature or pain in the tooth and gums.

Depending on which tooth is in need of treatment, and your individual situation Dr Sigg may perform the treatment or refer you to an endodontist (root canal specialist).

Root Canal Procedure in Indianapolis

If you experience any of these symptoms, your dentist at Cornerstone Family Dentistry will most likely recommend non-surgical root canal treatment in Indianapolis to eliminate the diseased pulp.


This injured pulp is removed, and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed. This therapy usually involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one or more visits depending on the treatment required. Success for this type of treatment occurs in about 90% of cases. We use local anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. You will be able to drive home after your treatment, and you probably will be comfortable returning to your normal routine.


If your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be informed at the time of consultation or when a complication becomes evident during or after treatment.

What Happens After Root Canal Treatment?

If a specialist has completed your root canal treatment, a record of your treatment will be sent to Dr. Sigg. who will decide on what type of restoration is necessary to protect your tooth. It is rare for endodontic patients to experience complications after routine endodontic treatment or microsurgery. If a problem does occur, however, we are available at all times to respond. To prevent further decay, continue to practice good dental hygiene.

How Much Root Canal Treatment Costs in Indianapolis?

The cost associated with this procedure can vary depending on factors such as the severity of damage to the affected tooth and which tooth is affected. In general, endodontic treatment is much less expensive than tooth removal and replacement with an artificial tooth.
