Dental Anesthesia

At Dental Arts & Wellness, we know that a pleasant dental experience is the cornerstone of building a trust-based relationship with our patients. To ensure your comfort, we have several ways to optimize your experience with us while putting you at ease and allowing you to relax.

High-Strength Numbing Gel

We use high-strength topical gel to numb the gums before an injection, eliminating that initial pinch from the needle. This helps alleviate nervousness you may feel from the sight of a syringe.

Local Anesthetic

We use a powerful local anesthetic that, when combined with our high-strength numbing gel, makes dental procedures painless.

Warmed Anesthetic

We have invested in technology that heats our anesthetic to body temperature, which removes the “cold” feeling often experienced during an injection.

DentalVibe®

As part of our patient-oriented comfort process, we use an award-winning device called the DentalVibe, used by only the most exclusive practices in the area. The DentalVibe sends soothing vibrations deep into the gum tissue during an injection. Because vibration signals travel to the brain faster than pain signals do, DentalVibe’s vibrations reach the brain first and block pain from being felt, allowing for comfortable administration of intraoral injections.

The Wand (Single-Tooth Anesthesia/CompuDent®)

The CompuDent is cutting-edge dental technology that provides a more comfortable injection experience. This tool is computer controlled, ensuring that the flow of the anesthetic is accurate, slow, steady, and comfortable. The numbing affect is localized and limited to one area — you don’t leave our office with a heavy, numb feeling in your face. Perhaps best of all, its appearance is small and pen-like, removing the intimidation from the injection experience.
