OK to be sedated for Root Canal? I been to the denstist twice for a root canal on the same tooth only because even with the 3 shots of pain killing medicine they gave me I still feel the pain.

Now my dentist says he can't perform the root canal and I should go to a specialist. My question is can I have the root canal while under sedation (noxide-oxcide) or any other sedation?

If you do not have any health problems that would prevent you from having dental work done under sedation or nitrous oxide, then yes, you can have your root canal finished this way.

Since your general dentist could not get you totally numb to complete your needed endodontic treatment, I would recommend you looking in the dental section of the phone book under "Endodontists."

An Endodontist specializes in treatment for endodontic (root canal) problems. When you call them find out if they offer sedation or nitrous oxide air for their patients.
