We consult with you to go over your options and begin by administering sedation. This will help to keep you calm during the procedure. We offer a range of different sedative options to meet the needs of each of our patients. We then perform the surgery that is needed. For example, if you have a tooth that is broken or cracked, a root canal may be necessary prior to caring for the tooth itself. We customize your surgical experience to ensure that you are receiving the care that you need in a setting that is comfortable and relaxed for you.
