I’m nervous about my root canal. Can you help?
At Singh Smile Care, we know that it is natural for you to be anxious about certain dental procedures. Root canals in particular do not have a good reputation, but there’s no reason to be nervous about the procedure itself. Dental techniques and technology are constantly being updated and improved, and having a root canal today is not the least bit complicated or painful.
Knowing that fact may not do anything to reduce your anxiety, though, because many people like you experience a fear of dentists that probably started in childhood. We want you to know that we understand that your concerns are very real to you, and our outstanding team of professionals is trained to treat your concerns with kindness and compassion.
Sedation Dentistry for Root Canals
If you tend to delay treatment because your fear of dentists is overwhelming, there are various forms of sedation available to help you. If you’ve been told that root canal therapy is necessary, you should not put off treatment. Avoiding treatment may very well put you at risk for losing your tooth.
Simple sedation techniques like nitrous oxide are very effective in helping us manage your anxiety. If your fears are more severe, oral sedation may be a better option for you.
Please don’t put off root canal treatment because of fear. Our gentle and caring team will help you through the process and make sure you are completely comfortable from beginning to end. Please contact our Phoenix dental office today for more information about our stress-free root canal.
