A Painless Dentist Visit

Many children and adults may fear a visit to the dentist’s office because they think that the experience will be painful for them. However, there are multiple dental devices that are utilized by professional dentists during procedures and treatments that alleviate pain or numb a particular area that is being worked on.

If the idea of a dentist visit scares you, do not fear, for AH Smiles has options for our patients that are pain-free. After a visit with our professionals, you may find that the prospect of a dentist visit is no longer intimidating.

Painless Dental Options

Dr. Brent Engelberg & Associates at AH Smiles make patient’s comfort a priority during each and every part of the treatment process. There are several elements of dentistry that are utilized at AH Smiles to make dental appointments painless and comfortable for patients:

Topical Anesthetic Gel

This gel is applied to an area that is worked on during a dental procedure. The anesthetic in the gel numbs the site that it is applied to so that patients do not feel any pain.


This device is used at numbed areas of the mouth and takes the pain out of oral injections. The DentalVibe® disperses anesthesia quickly and vibrates at a frequency that immobilizes pain receptors.

The Wand®

The Wand® is a computerized anesthetic delivery system. The device provides anesthesia at a consistent drip so that operations are carried out smoothly and the site of surgery or treatment is numbed.

All of these dental devices are meant for the patient’s comfort and ease. Not only are these options convenient for dentists, but they ensure that the patient’s pain is alleviated or nonexistent.

Additionally, if patients need to be completely relaxed, Dr. Engelberg & Associates offer sedation dentistry.
