Does getting a root canal hurt?
This is an excellent question because we’d like to dispel any ideas that you might have that getting a root canal is painful. In truth, even with older techniques used decades ago, it wasn’t so much the procedure that caused the greatest discomfort—it was the pain of the infection. Since the goal of root canal treatment at our Bonita Springs dental office is to remove the infection, the procedure also eliminates your pain.
If you have a painful root canal infection that we’re treating, the first step is for Dr. Gostigian to apply a local anesthetic to the area. This will numb the area completely, and the first thing you will notice is blissful relief! The pain is gone!
But years of conditioning have left many people with fears about the procedure, so we offer comfortable dentistry at Bonita Grande Dental. We offer sedation options like nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation that will take the edge off your anxiety. Our team will also pamper you with soothing music, pillows, blankets, and even warm scented towels after your procedure.
With this combination of sedation dentistry and attention to your needs, we strive to provide you with the most stress-free root canal treatment in Bonita Springs that you can imagine.
If you need to schedule a root canal in Bonita Springs but are anxious about the procedure, please call Dr. Gostigian. We’ll make an appointment to see you as soon as possible to get you the comfortable treatment you need.
