Patient comfort is an important factor in all dentistry performed by Dr. Engelberg and Dr. Mullarkey at Arlington Heights Smiles. Whether you are receiving a dental filling or a root canal, our goal is to ensure that your procedure is as pain free as possible. We utilize some of the leading technology for pain free dentistry so that you can relax from the moment you sit in the dentist’s chair until you leave our office with a clean, healthy smile.
Avoiding the dentist due to fear and anxiety often leads to complex dental problems that detrimentally affect your quality of life. Dr. Engelberg and Dr. Mullarkey work with patients who have been away from the dentist and need to restore their smile, taking the time to educate them on all aspects of their treatment and improving their experience with pain free procedures using advanced technology.
There are three key components to a pain free experience at Arlington Heights Smiles:
- Topical Anesthetic Gel: first, a smooth topical anesthetic gel is applied to the area to be treated and gently massaged into the tissue, beginning the numbing process.
- DentalVibe®: the second step is to apply a hand held device called a DentalVibe®, which vibrates the numbed area at a specific frequency which will prevent the stimulation of local pain receptors.
- The Wand® & STA® & CompuDent®: the final step is the pain free injection of computer assisted anesthetic using The Wand®. This computerized anesthetic delivery system provides a steady, consistent drip of anesthetic for a comfortable, pain free dental procedure.
In addition to the above technology, Drs. Engelberg and Mullarkey offer sedation dentistry for patients needing or desiring to be completely relaxed during their dental procedure.
