Anesthesia

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.

Sedation

Some patients need a little help achieving a relaxed state. Nitrous Oxide ("laughing gas") is available when needed to make you more comfortable.

Topical Anesthetic

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.


SyrijetNeedle-less Anesthesia

We can now use the Syrijet needle-less anesthesia injector in many cases for our patients that have a fear of needles. The Syrijet propels an ultra-fine stream of anesthesia into the desired location and provides anesthesia without any need for needles!

Anesthesia Warmers

Special warming units are used to warm the anesthetic solution to precisely body-temperature, or just a bit warmer, to make the process of getting you "numb" virtually painless.


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, Dr. Fallin will be happy to discuss them with you. We want you to be as comfortable as possible.
