Root Canals in Hamden

Providing Quality Dental Care across New Haven County

At Forrester Dental, we are committed to providing our patients with effective root canal treatments while ensuring they are comfortable and relaxed. Your physical comfort and emotional wellbeing are our primary concerns. Root canals save countless teeth from being pulled and leaving behind unnecessary and permanent gaps. We feel confident we can prevent that outcome, and do so in a way that keeps you feeling cared for and safe.

Schedule an appointment with a trusted Hamden dentist to learn more about why you don’t need to fear root canals at (203) 295-3434.

What Happens During a Root Canal in Hamden

Teeth are made of hard layers that cover a soft center of nerves. This pulpy core is responsible for helping your teeth grow and stay alive. When the core becomes infected, it swells, which can then cause intense pain that shoots outward from the inflamed nerve bundle. During a root canal, the infected inner tissue is removed and the inside of the tooth canal is cleaned and sealed to prevent the infection from returning. Lastly, a crown is put over the tooth to finish the procedure and get your teeth back to functioning properly.

Do You Need a Root Canal?

Sometimes, the damage to a tooth is obvious on the surface level, such as a crack or chip. Other times, however, the damage is deeper and harder to identify. When this is the case, it’s important to know what signs you should look for in order to determine how to relieve your pain.

Contact an experienced Hamden dentist if you are dealing with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Discoloration in your teeth
  • Oversensitivity to temperature
  • Difficulty with chewing
  • Gum swelling
  • Excessive tenderness
  • Drainage
