When a tooth develops an infection in its innermost layer, the dental pulp, a serious, debilitating toothache can result. There is even the risk that the infection will spread into the surrounding tissue. In the past, teeth with this kind of damage would simply be extracted. However, using root canals in Branford, the team at New Haven Dental Group may be able to save even the most damaged teeth and help them regain full function. Thanks to our modern techniques and technology, this procedure is now one of the most effective ways to relieve severe dental pain.
If you need a root canal, our team will numb your tooth, access its innermost chamber, and remove all of the infected tissue. Then, we may protect the treated tooth with a dental crown. Many patients say the procedure feels like getting a small filling, and after you heal, you will once again be able to enjoy pain-free dental function.
