One of the things that scares patients the most is getting a shot. Nobody likes getting poked with a needle. To do that, we have techniques that virtually eliminate the pain and discomfort of the shots. First, we use topical anesthetics to numb up the gums. Secondly, we use a system called Anutra.
Dental anesthetics, generally, are very acidic, so when you inject them into the human body, they burn because of the acids. They have to be acidic to dissolve the Lidocaine, the compound that actually causes the numbness. Then the body has to buffer them before they can pass through into the nerves through the fatty layer on the outside of the nerves.
There are systems where we can use a buffer neutral pH anesthetic and there's not that burn going in. It actually, since the body doesn't have to neutralize the acids found in the typical dental anesthetics, it gets the patients numb faster and more comfortably. Often times, I hear that, 'Wow, I didn't even feel that,' with the patient, ad hoc goes a long way to relieving their anxiety.

Take Comfort In Receiving Compassionate, Competent Care
Dental anxiety statistics show that the main reason people fear the dentist is because they fear pain. You won’t have to worry about that at our office, as we always make sure you don’t feel a thing when we work. Whether it’s through local anesthesia or a safe sedative, we always make sure our patients are completely comfortable.
If you still feel afraid despite all our comfort options, don’t worry! We also have sedation options that can be customized to your needs. Your choices are:
- Nitrous oxide – Also known as “laughing gas,” this sedative is inhaled and considered safe for almost everyone, including children.
- Conscious sedation – Taken in pill form before your appointment, this sedative will induce a deep state of relaxation once it takes effect.
- NuCalm – This new system helps you control adrenaline and keep your brain in a calm, relaxed state. This will feel like you’re just about to fall asleep.
