3 Steps To Pain-Free Dentistry
- Topical Anesthetic Gel: We begin with applying a topical anesthetic to numb the area where the local anesthetic will be infected. We allow the gel to sit for about a minute so that it can take full effect. From step one, we are helping to protect you from any discomfort.
- DentalVibe®: This handheld device works to trick your mind. The gentle vibrations distract your mind from the sensation of anesthetic injection. The specific frequency prevents 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.
