3 Steps We Take to Make Your Root Canal Comfortable

January 19, 2017
Posted By: Dr. Terry O'Neill
Comfortable Root Canals St. Paul MN

We have seen it a hundred times. We let a patient know they need a root canal, and a look of dread spreads across their face.

Root canals are among the most feared dental procedures, but unfairly so! You will be happy to know that we provide comfortable root canal treatment here in our St. Paul dental office, eliminating the dread and worry that accompanies your appointment.

Here are three steps we take to ensure comfortable root canal therapy:

1. Dr. O’Neill Uses an Innovative Anesthetic Technique

Some patients have a greater difficulty getting numb than others. Dr. O’Neill recognizes this and implemented onset buffered anesthetic techniques for use in our practice. If you are one of the patients who takes a long time to get numb or you have trouble feeling fully numb, Dr. O’Neill provides this solution. It is effective for our patients, giving them relief when they need it most. You can learn more about it here.

He also uses a prescription strength topical anesthetic to numb your mouth before applying anesthetic so that you don’t feel a thing.

2. Experience Equals Success!

Dr. O’Neill has performed over 10,000 root canals since the beginning of his career. You are in great hands while you are with us. His expertise means precise, pain-free root canal therapy that can save your tooth.

Additionally, his experience means that we can perform most root canal treatment right in one visit right here in our St. Paul dental office without the need for a referral.

3. For Fearful Patients, We Offer Sedation Dentistry

We know that in spite of the reassurances we provide, some patients might still experience anxiety when it comes to root canal treatment. If you need help relaxing for your root canal therapy or any other procedure, we offer sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry will help you relax completely and eliminate any stress associated with your dental appointment.
