What is Endodontics?
Endodontics is a specialty within dentistry that focuses on the inside of the tooth, specifically the pulp inside teeth. Dental pulp is made up of the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue inside a tooth. If a tooth is damaged in some way, through tooth decay or dental trauma, harmful bacteria can find its way inside of one or more teeth and cause an infection. When this happens, the tooth pulp must be removed so the infection can be treated, and the tooth can be restored. Highly-qualified endodontists are experts when it comes to saving natural teeth through root canal therapy.
Dental Sedation for Endodontic Treatments
Root canals can be very anxiety-inducing, and many patients worry about how much pain they will feel during and after their treatments. Fortunately, our office utilizes dental sedation in addition to local anesthesia. Patients will always receive a painless gum injection that completely numbs the mouth. Dental sedation is an additional service that can make advanced restorative treatments more pleasant, and we offer nitrous oxide as well as general anesthesia. If you are interested in utilizing dental sedation during your endodontic procedure, we recommend speaking with our team and visiting our sedation page.
