We want to make your visit as easy, efficient, and comfortable as possible. We provide our patients with lip balm, headphones, glasses, blankets, chair massagers, TV/movies – anything that might help you relax and remain comfortable during your visit to our office. For a pain-free experience, we introduce anesthetics to numb the area of the procedure.
Along with, or in addition to typical local anesthetic applications, we also offer Nitrous Oxide, Oral Sedative for Anxiolysis* (*must have escort), and Comfort Care local anesthetics are available upon request. Some of these items incur additional fees, so we will inform you if you inquire about these options.
The Wand hand-piece works in conjunction with the STA system. It is a thin and light weight pen-like delivery system making the injection more comfortable.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous Oxide, also called “laughing gas” is a safe, efficient method to relieve common dental anxiety. It is administered through a soft nasal hood and can produce feelings of euphoria, relaxation and decreased sensitivity. Unlike other sedative options, with Nitrous Oxide you usually do not need an escort and can drive yourself home.
We special order this prescription, custom made jelly-like topical that is first applied with a cotton tip. It provides profound numbing and is an easy way to get started.
