End Dental Pain With Root Canals in Boynton Beach
Root canals are no one’s favorite dental procedure. Yet the truth is, root canal therapy is nowhere near as bad as its reputation. This is especially true in our Boynton Beach, FL dentist office because Dr. Hugh Rosenblatt uses a rotary instrument for the procedure.
Root canal has the worst reputation of dentistry. It's why a lot of people don't even come to the dentist; you say that word and it's like a buzz word. We try to make it as comfortable as possible. I make sure you're numb so you don't feel it. It's really not as bad as what it sounds. A root canal allows you to restore a tooth that before was not restorable. Once the nerve is removed from the tooth, you can restore that tooth with a crown and you don't end up losing the tooth, so it's a great advancement in dentistry. We can actually save teeth that are in bad shape. It's a great service that I provide for people.
Traditional root canal treatment involves inserting a series of metal files into your teeth. Using an electrical rotary instrument makes the process faster and more comfortable. Dr. Rosenblatt can more easily remove infected material from the center of your tooth. That isn’t the only advanced technology he uses, though. He can better plan your root canal procedure using a CT scan, a detailed 3D image of your teeth, and surrounding facial structure.
There’s no need to worry if you think your tooth is infected! Call Hugh B. Rosenblatt, DMD, PA at (561) 737-8559.
Stay Relaxed With Sedation During Your Procedure
We’ll thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia before your procedure starts so that you won’t feel any pain. If you’re anxious, however, you can choose one of our two forms of dental sedation:
- Inhaled sedation (“laughing gas”) takes effect quickly and gives you a feeling of euphoria. It also wears off quickly; you’ll even be able to drive yourself home.
- Oral sedation is a safe medication that can be taken before your procedure, so you arrive already relaxed and stay that way throughout your treatment.
We offer you other ways to stay comfortable, too, like neck pillows and blankets, music and TV options for entertainment, and even an eye mask to help block out harsh light.
