The truth is, for many patients root canal therapy is a necessary and tooth saving treatment. Without root canal therapy, the infection in your tooth may spread to gum tissue, connective tissues, and the jawbone. Root canal therapy can literally save the functionality and the appearance of your tooth—yet many patients suffer from extreme anxiety when faced with the prospect of root canal therapy.
The good news is that our Elmhurst root canal dental office is here to make root canal treatment as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Read on to learn how we work to put our patients at ease.
1. It’s all about trust
When you undergo root canal therapy, you want to know that you’re putting your teeth in good hands. Our Elmhurst dentists walk our patients through every step of the treatment, so that they’ll know exactly what will happen. The more information you have, the more confident you’ll feel about how simple and seamless the procedure is. We’ll answer all of your questions and do everything we can to support you and put you at ease.
To that end, you’ll be able to relax during treatment. You’ll can listen to your iPod and relax with a comfy blanket while we restore your oral health.
2. Sedation services
For patients with serious dental anxiety, we’re proud to offer sedation dentistry services. Sedation dentistry can help you in two ways. First, sedation can help you clam down enough before treatment to get you in the dentist’s chair in the first place. Then, during treatment, sedation will keep you calm and pain-free.
The combination of personal patient care and state-of-the-art sedation will help you get the treatment you need. Give our Elmhurst dental office a call to learn more about what we can do to help you through root canal therapy.
