Computerized Novocain Delivery
We use Compudent as our Novocain delivery system. It’s a small tool that that delivers computer measured anesthetic without the scary needle you’re used to. That means no more shots. In fact, most people don’t even know they are getting “numbed up.” The types of remarks we get from almost all of our patients include, “That’s It?” or “What was that?” “I didn’t feel a thing,” and our favorite, “That was great!”
In addition to Novocain, we can offer other anesthetics that will guarantee you will be pain free anywhere from fifteen minutes to a few hours. This will insure your comfort both during and after treatments.
When appropriate, Nitrous Oxide( N2O2), sometimes called laughing gas, is used as a calming agent. It’s an odorless gas that is combined with oxygen to reduce anxiety and offers some pain control. It is applied with a comfortable mask over your nose that allows you to breathe normally. The mild effects of the gas end immediately when the flow of gas stops, and there are no aftereffects. When used in combination with other pain management approaches, even a person with severe dental anxiety will be conscious and comfortable during dental treatment.
Nurse Anesthetist-Deep Sedation/Analgesia
When required, we have a licensed nurse anesthetist on staff who can administer I.V. sedation, equivalent to operating room standards.
With all of these anti-pain and anti-anxiety resources at our disposal, we can guarantee that your dental treatment at All Care Dentistry will be as comfortable and pain free as possible.
