Stop Putting Off that Root Canal – There’s NO Reason to Be Scared!

How was that hamburger at yesterday’s cookout? Was it tender and juicy? Maybe the answer is a resounding “no” because when you bit down, an extreme pain shot through your tooth and gum. Now that you think about it, eating has become a painful chore. You have noticed that your gums are continually swelling in one area of your gum line. None of this should be a surprise. Your last visit to the dentist was 2015, or was it 2005? Either way, it has been too long, and now you may be looking at a root canal.


Root canal – two words that strike fear in even the bravest of us; yet, there is no reason to duck your head in the sand and ignore the signs. Pain relief has changed over the years. Parkland Mall Dental Centre’s family dentists in Red Deer understand that many patients fear dental work. We work with you to make sure your procedure is as comfortable as possible.

Sedation to Make Your Fear Go Away
The goal of sedating a patient is to prevent pain. When used with anesthetic, the patient not only has no pain, but their anxiety drains away. To understand the types of sedation and general anesthesia used by a dentist, consider this list:

Relax During Your Treatment with Nitrous Oxide
There is no shame in having anxiety when visiting a dentist. We understand and work with you to make your visit as comfortable as possible from the moment you walk in the door. Our goal is to alleviate your anxiety. That includes using nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas.” The benefits of using nitrous oxide include putting you in a completely relaxed state, no “hangover” effect, and no need for an injection.
