How can you keep me comfortable during a root canal?

We know that no one looks forward to having a root canal. In fact, root canals are unfortunately one of the most dreaded of all dental procedures.

This reputation is unwarranted, because techniques and instruments used for root canals today have improved significantly in recent years. In the hands of a competent dentist like Dr. Law, a root canal does not need to be any more stressful than having a tooth filled.

However, we do understand that this fact alone may not be enough to lessen your fears. In that case, we can offer effective sedation to help you stay comfortable during the procedure.

Nitrous oxide is a safe and mild sedation method that is very effective for reducing anxiety and creating a calm, relaxed feeling. It is also a great choice because it does not have any lingering after-effects. You will be able to return to your normal activities as soon as treatment is finished.

Oral sedation is helpful for those who have greater anxiety. When used in combination with nitrous oxide, we can provide a truly comfortable, stress-free experience.
