With Our Gentle Touch, There’s No Need to Fear a Root Canal

If you need a root canal, there’s really nothing to be afraid of. This procedure is no different from many other treatments we perform on a daily basis at Marina Landing Family Dentistry. Your comfort is our top priority, and we’ll do our best to make sure you’re completely relaxed during your root canal procedure. We will numb your mouth with local anesthetic and offer you a choice of sedation options.

You can choose inhaled sedation with laughing gas, which will quickly help your dental anxiety melt away. For more intense dental fear, we can prescribe a pill that you’ll take before your appointment. Then you’ll lie back completely relaxed in the dental chair. You may not even remember much about your procedure afterward.

After you’re good and relaxed, Dr. Dharia will:

  • Access the diseased inner portion of the tooth, cleaning it out to remove all the infection
  • Sanitize your tooth with special medicine
  • Shape and repair the root canals inside the tooth
  • Fill the canals with a rubber-like material to prevent reinfection
  • Seal your tooth in preparation for a new crown

During these steps, you shouldn’t feel any discomfort at all. After your procedure, your pain will be gone and your tooth will still be intact.
