At Cascade Endodontics in Orem UT, we have spent a ton of time and blog space trying to dispel the myth of the painful root canal. While root canals can cause some discomfort, with modern dental advancements, they are no more or less uncomfortable than most common dental treatments.
This is especially true at our offices, where we take every step to ensure you are comfortable and pain-free throughout your endodontic procedure. Don’t take our word for it! Check out the many ways we ensure your comfort and satisfaction below!
The Steps We Take
- Thorough Analysis: When you first arrive, we will discuss all your issues and dental needs openly and without judgment. After an in-depth analysis, our dental team will directly communicate your options, as well as their pros and cons, so you stay in the know about your own dental plan.
- Varied Sedation Options: Before we initiate your endodontic procedure, we will discuss our sedation options. Whether you want a light dose of laughing gas, a half-measure like oral conscious sedation, or complete IV sedation, you can choose the level of awareness and sensitivity you are comfortable.
- Calm Endodontic Procedure: During your root canal, we will provide music and other entertainment options as a way to keep your mind off the procedure. Our dental assistants will check-in with your regularly, in order to ensure your continued numbing and sedation.
- Comprehensive Aftercare: Following your procedure, our dental hygienists will provide you with a detailed aftercare regimen to ensure your root canal heals properly.
