What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a form of dental care that helps patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their treatment. It is used to help patients who are anxious or have difficulty getting through dental procedures. Sedation dentistry is also used to help alleviate pain during dental procedures, especially those that involve the roots of the teeth.
The type of sedation used depends on the patient’s needs and the procedure being performed. The most common types of sedation used in dentistry are oral sedation, inhalation sedation, and intravenous sedation. Oral sedation is a pill taken orally before the procedure and usually lasts for several hours. Inhalation sedation involves inhaling a gas, such as nitrous oxide, during the procedure. Intravenous sedation is when a sedative is injected directly into the bloodstream.
What Services Does an Endodontist Provide?
An endodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating the soft tissue inside the root of the tooth. Endodontists are experts in diagnosing, preventing, and treating diseases and injuries of the pulp and root of the tooth.
At our practice, our endodontists provide a variety of services to help relieve your dental pain. These services include root canal therapy, endodontic retreatment, apicoectomy, and more.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a procedure used to treat diseased or injured teeth. During the treatment of root canal pain, the endodontist removes the infected or injured pulp from inside the tooth and then fills the empty space with a special material. The tooth is then sealed with a permanent crown.
Endodontic retreatment is a procedure used to treat teeth that have had root canal therapy but are still experiencing pain or other symptoms. During the procedure, the endodontist removes the existing filling material and replaces it with a new material.
An apicoectomy is a procedure used to treat an infected or damaged root tip. During the procedure, the endodontist removes the infected or damaged root tip and then seals the end of the root with a special material.
