Minimal Conscious Sedation
Dr. Wright is certified by the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners to provide minimal conscious sedation for his patients. The majority of endodontic procedures can be done painlessly and with local anesthetics only. If however, a patient is particularly anxious about the procedure, Dr. Wright is trained to safely and effectively use oral sedation (not IV sedation) and/or Nitrous Oxide to help them relax and tolerate the procedure more easily.
For those patients who feel that they may need IV sedation, Dr. Wright can schedule a Dental Anesthesiologist to be present to perform the IV sedation while Dr. Wright performs the endodontic procedure.
