Root canal treatment can and often will last a lifetime. Many endodontic procedures are performed to relieve the pain of toothaches caused by pulp inflammation or infection. With modern techniques and anesthetics, most patients report that they are comfortable during the procedure.
We realize that some patients may be anxious or apprehensive to undergo the treatment needed to save the tooth, which is why comfort is a major consideration in developing treatment plans. That’s why we offer oral sedation and nitrous oxide to supplement local anesthesia so you can feel calm and relaxed in the dental chair.
