New advances in dental medications have virtually eliminated the discomfort of dental procedures. There are several elements to creating a comfortable experience for your dental appointment:

Comfort and Relaxation

The first step is to make you relaxed and comfortable. From the comfortable environment in our reception area to the soothing environment we have created around the dental chairs, no detail is too small when your comfort is concerned. Our caring, professional staff are committed to creating a stress-free environment for your comfort.


Topical

Topical Anesthetic

A topical anesthetic can be used any time the surface of the gum needs to be "numbed", such as easing the discomfort of a painful mouth sore or preparing a site for an injectable local anesthetic.

 

Local

Local Anesthetic

Modern fast-acting local anesthetics, in conjunction with effective topical anesthesia, have virtually eliminated the discomfort of "getting numb". Local anesthetics are available in several strengths so you don't have to experience the "fat lip" sensation for hours after leaving the dental office.

 

OTC analgesics

Post-visit Analgesics

Generally, if there is any discomfort at all after a dental procedure, over-the-counter analgesics such as aspirin or non-asprin pain relievers are all that is needed. In exceptional circumstances a prescription pain reliever will be used.

Any questions?

If you have any questions or concerns about anesthesia, Your dentist will be happy to discuss them with you. We want you to be as comfortable as possible.
