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