Will they provide sedation at my village dentist?

I feel really pathetic for asking this of you but I am booked in at my dentist tomorrow because I am going to get a root canal preformed on me. The thought of this really makes me gag nevermind the thought of having a drill shoved in my mouth for the procedure. I live in a small village therefore the dentist is only a small dentist from what I can tell, so will they provide sedation for me? Iam really embarrassed about asking them about this

I may not be in time for you but I hope I am.
You need to ask about sedation before the actual appointment to make sure either way about this .
At this short notice all that might help would be a sedative tablet taken about an hour before the appointment.
Intravenous sedation takes some prior arrangemments but have courage and ask about it .
Good luck , root canal doesnt have to be painful or horrible these days, Thanks Jenny
