At Cascade Endodontics in Orem UT, we know how stressful the very idea of a root canal can be. It is worth noting that, with the advances of modern dentistry, root canal treatment is no less painful than any average dental procedure.
But regardless of this fact, the stigma against endodontics creates the risk that patients might skip out on their very necessary procedures. In order to combat this reality, we offer a host of sedation dentistry options that help our patients stay relaxed, calm, euphoric, and even unconscious through their procedure.
Sedation Options Available to You
Laughing Gas Sedation
Nitrous oxide can help you feel less anxious by inducing a state of deep relaxation. It is an inexpensive method and is recommended for those that only suffer from mild dental anxiety. With laughing gas, the procedure will feel like a breeze.
A popular options for those who have a deeper fear of root canals, conscious sedation consists of taking a pill about an hour before your appointment. This will place you in an even greater level of comfort, and is combined with laughing gas for the best results.
This level of sedation is as close to sleeping through your root canal as you can get! It will require an analysis to see if you’re eligible and will be administered by an anesthesiologist who will monitor your status the whole time.
At Cascade Endodontics in Orem UT, we encourage you to face your fears. Come in for a endodontic consultation and see for yourself that the myth of painful root canals is just that: a myth! Contact us today!
