I'm worried about having a root canal. How can you help me?
The idea of having root canal therapy can be scary for many people. This is mainly due to negative experiences that they or others have had in the past. Fortunately, state-of-the-art dental treatment and techniques used at our Winter Park dental office have made root canals efficient and stress-free.
Putting off a root canal due to fear is never a good idea. Most people aren’t aware that they have an infected root canal until they are in pain. At that point, it is critical to have treatment because pain indicates that the infection has reached the innermost portion of your tooth. If the infection is not treated, the pain will not only escalate in severity, but you will put yourself at risk for losing the tooth.
Using updated techniques, however, root canal therapy to remove the infection is really no more complicated or uncomfortable than having a tooth filled. The area being treated will be numbed completely so that you won’t feel any discomfort during the procedure.
If you are still anxious about the idea of having the procedure, we do have options that will help you relax sufficiently so that you can get the treatment you need. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is very effective in allowing you to relax completely during the procedure. If you have a higher level of anxiety we do have other options available.
We urge you to contact our Winter Park dental office to arrange for the treatment you need to treat a root canal infection. Our professional team is very sensitive to your anxiety and is here to help make the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
