Dr. Henry Danziger and Dr. Matthew Kerr have had additional training to specialize in endodontics just for you. Endodontics is the dental specialty of the study and treatment of dental pulp, which usually involves root canal treatments.

Do you have a tooth that is dying from being severely decayed or infected? If so, we are happy to provide you with a root canal treatment through endodontics in Naugatuck, Connecticut. Root canal treatment is performed when the nerve of your tooth becomes infected and your pulp becomes damaged. If you have a severe toothache, prolonged sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, discoloration in the tooth, swelling in the nearby gums and a persistent pimple on the gums, it might be time for a root canal.

The root canal treatment will include your dentist taking X-rays and examining the shape of the roots. Before the curing process begins, they will give you local anesthesia to numb the area. Your dentist will then drill a hole into your tooth and remove the bacteria, damaged pulp, and other debris from the tooth. Your tooth will then be cleaned by them scraping and scrubbing the tooth. Once the tooth is clean, they will seal it with a filling.
