What is Endodontics?

Endodontics (from the Greek roots endo- “inside” and odont- “tooth”) is the dental specialty concerned with the study and treatment of the dental pulp.

One common dental procedure under endodontics is root canals.

What is a root canal?

During root canal or endodontic treatment, the inflamed or infected pulp is removed and the inside of the tooth is carefully cleaned and disinfected, then filled and sealed with a rubber-like material called gutta-percha. Afterwards, the tooth is restored with a crown or filling for protection.

What Is conscious sedation?

Conscious sedation in dentistry helps the patient enter a state of relaxation while being awake during a dental procedure.  Although, you should not feel any pain, you will be able to respond to your dentist’s commands and questions.  Remember, dentist’s are not mind readers, so please if you feel any discomfort at all, alert your healthcare professional right away.

We at Fairhope Dental provide both oral and inhalation sedation. WE NO NOT provide IV sedation.
