For many years dental patients have enjoyed the numbing ability of novocaine to relieve any pain associated with common dental procedures. The most common complaints associated with novocaine is the fact that in some cases the injection itself can cause discomfort and later the injection site might ache.
These issues are even more important for people with dental anxiety, dental phobia and people with special needs. In some instances special needs patients have required sedation in advance of or as a replacement for numbing injections.
Your comfort is very important to us. As a result, we have invested in the technology that allows us to offer pain free dentistry!
Pain free dentistry is a new technology that sends a soothing vibration into the nerves in a specific area of the mouth. This vibration essentially tricks the brain into blocking the nerve receptors that associate injection pain. This allows the novocaine to be injected with absolute no pain or discomfort felt by you or your special needs patient.
Your comfort is very important to us. If you or your special needs patient have questions about numbing options or you have questions about pain free dentistry, please feel free to give us a call at 952.890.2791 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you!
