How can you keep me comfortable during root canal treatment?
At Dr. Farifax & Associates Family Dentistry, we know that receiving dental care is a challenge for many people. We’re also aware that root canals have a reputation for being complicated or uncomfortable, but it’s time to put these outdated ideas aside and see root canals as the essential treatment they are.
When is a Root Canal Needed?
You need a root canal when the pulp material deep inside your tooth becomes infected. The first indication is usually intense pain, and we need to perform the procedure to provide relief. While we need to get rid of the infected material, a root canal leaves the structure of your tooth intact. Without root canal treatment, you will likely experience worsening pain and eventually lose the tooth.
Our team does everything possible to put you at ease and make sure you’re comfortable. If your anxiety is still a problem, we are pleased to offer safe, gentle nitrous oxide sedation that helps you relax for the duration of the procedure and leaves no lingering after-effects. We also provide comforting amenities like pillows and blankets in our treatment rooms, and TVs and music offer a pleasant distraction so you can sit back and get the essential care you need.
