When a cavity or toothache causes an infection in the tooth’s inner pulp, root canal therapy may be necessary to safely remove the cause of your toothache and restore the health and comfort of your smile.

Our gentle and effective root canal therapy will give you or a loved one a healthier and more attractive smile.
What is a root canal procedure?
When an infection develops in the pulp, the tooth’s soft interior, root canal therapy may be necessary. This can be caused by a tooth that is weaker, by severe dental caries (cavities), by repeated dental procedures, or by a dental injury that makes it possible for an infection to enter the tooth’s inner layer.
When a root canal is required, it is strongly advised to consult with a dentist or endodontist to avoid infection, dental pain, or the loss of the affected tooth.
How to Recognize a Root Canal in Its Initial Phases
The best way to avoid getting a root canal is to brush, floss, and schedule a six-monthly checkup with your dentist. As soon as you observe any changes in your oral health, such as sensitive teeth that are impacted by hot or cold foods or sore or bleeding gums after brushing, it’s critical that you schedule an appointment with your dentist. Hansen Dental focuses on conservative and preventive dental care to keep your teeth healthy no matter what life throws at you.
Your Root Canal Treatment Appointment
The goal of endodontic dentistry is to treat conditions that affect or damage the tooth pulp.
During your root canal appointment, Dr. Neal Rosenberg will numb the tooth slightly to make the process painless. The unhealthy pulp is then removed, and the pain is relieved, by drilling a tiny hole into the tooth’s outer layer. The root canal must then be cleaned and filled with gutta-percha, a substance that mimics rubber and preserves the tooth’s original structure.
A crown or dental filling is used to seal the tooth.
