Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime. However, in some cases, root canal treatment may be needed to repair a tooth that is damaged, decayed or infected, and would otherwise need to be removed. The common misperception is that root canal treatment is painful. The fact is that root canal treatment actually relieves the pain associated with the infected or damaged tooth.
With today’s modern dental procedures and Dr. Pilecki’s caring and compassionate approach, root canal treatment can be virtually painless. If you are anxious about treatment, we offer nitrous oxide sedation to help ease anxiety so we can restore your smile back to health and function.
Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide sedation can be used in dental treatment to make you more calm and comfortable during treatment. It does not put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions Dr. Pilecki may have. Talk to us about whether nitrous oxide sedation would be a good option for you.
