You may not think of root canal therapy as “routine.” But for many dentists, including our Dr. Rick Barfield, it is a routine procedure. Most patients are pleasantly surprised to find the root canal procedure no more complicated or painful than getting a crown.
If you’re getting a root canal in Plano, TX, we’ll thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia before your procedure begins so you won’t feel a thing. If you’re still nervous, you can choose to receive dental sedation. Unlike many general dentists, we offer three different types: inhaled sedation (“laughing gas”), oral sedation, or intravenous (IV) sedation.
Watch our video to hear Dr. Barfield explain a little more about root canals. If you’ve got a toothache and think it’s possible you could need one, don’t delay scheduling an exam at our Plano, TX dentist office! Call 1st in Smiles at 972-905-9266.
