The teeth are actually composed of multiple layers, and when dental decay or injury causes an infection in the innermost one, known as the dental pulp, this can lead to a severe toothache because this is where the sensitive nerve is housed. In order to eliminate this pain, our team can perform a root canal to remove the infected tissue. Despite its reputation as a painful procedure, it’s actually one of the best tools we have to relieve dental pain as well as save teeth that would otherwise need to be removed.
“Wisdom teeth” is the common name for the third set of molars that tend to start erupting around the ages of 16-25. Most people simply do not have enough room in their mouths to fit these teeth, so when they try to come in, this can lead to all sorts of issues ranging from pain in the jaw to tooth crowing to an infection. At DNL Dental, we’re able to safely and effectively extract these teeth no matter what stage they are in so you can have one less thing to worry about.
Sometimes, in the case of certain dental emergencies, we may need to remove a tooth because it is simply too damaged to be rescued. We’ll make sure you’re completely comfortable during this procedure thanks to local anesthetic and sedation, and we’ll immediately get to work helping you choose a proper replacement. In the end, we’ll make sure you won’t have to deal with an incomplete set of teeth!
Sleep apnea is a very serious disorder characterized by loud, chronic snoring and brief lapses in breathing during sleep. This can leave a person feeling constantly exhausted during the day and even raise their blood pressure to extremely dangerous levels. Now, dentists are able to effectively treat this condition using custom-made oral appliances, which are ideal for patients who have mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or are CPAP intolerant.
Dental phobia is the number one reason people avoid going to the dentist every year, but at DNL Dental, we’re able to successfully treat nervous patients every day thanks to sedation dentistry. This collection of techniques can drastically reduce any stress or discomfort a patient may feel in the dental chair, enabling them to finally sit back, relax, and even enjoy their dental visits. If you’re ready to take the fear out of your dental care, then we’re the practice for you.
Effective October 31st, 2018, DNL Dental is no longer seeing patients at this location. The practice has merged with New Haven Dental Group (NewHavenDental.com) with 4 locations in Connecticut.
