Pain Free Dentistry

While dental procedures can be made pain-free by the use of local anaesthetics, for those patients with fear of pain the anaesthetic injection itself may be a source of dread. Your dentist can apply a numbing gel to the gums and ensure that the injection is given slowly and with the anaesthetic at room temperature; these precautions should make the process pain free.  Giving the anaesthetic time to take effect before starting treatment is also important, as the time taken varies from patient to patient. During treatment if you feel any pain at all your dentist can "top up" the anaesthetic to ensure that you remain comfortable.
