Relax during your procedure with Conscious Sedation
Dr. Steiner will prescribe a relaxing medication for you to take prior to your procedure. You will be conscious and able to respond to our questions during your procedure, but should expect to have a very relaxed feeling and complacency toward what is happening around you. Most of our patients who have used this method prefer it when they are anxious about a certain procedure. You will need a driver to and from your appointment.
This procedure often gets a bad name, but today’s technology and simplified methods have helped Dr. Steiner to perform Root Canals more efficiently and more comfortably than ever before.
Root Canal treatment is necessary when the pulp (soft tissue) inside your teeth containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) becomes inflamed or diseased. During root canal treatment, Dr. Steiner removes the diseased pulp. The pulp chamber and root canal(s) of the tooth are then cleaned and sealed. If the infected pulp is not removed, pain and swelling can result, and your tooth may have to be removed.
Causes of an infected pulp could include:
- A deep cavity.
- Repeated dental procedure.
