Solutions for fearful patients.
If the thought of sitting in a dental chair makes you anxious or nervous, Dr. Tony Rainwater in Lafayette, Louisiana can help. Dr. Rainwater offers nitrous oxide, pill sedation, and IV sedation from a certified nurse anesthetist. These sedation methods safely put you in a tranquil state of mind, meaning you will feel removed from what is actually going on and have virtually no memory of your treatment once it’s finished. Dr. Rainwater is currently the only Lafayette, Louisiana endodontist who offers IV sedation.
If you put off getting the endodontic care you need because of fear, you are putting the health of your smile at risk. Saving a tooth with root canal therapy can save you lots of time and money if you consider the alternatives. If you lose your tooth, the gap left behind needs to be addressed with either a partial denture or dental implant.
