|We are genuinely concerned for your comfort before, during, and after every visit. Because we want you to be as comfortable and happy as if you were in your own home, we offer a variety of methods to help make your dental visit a comfortable and pleasant experience. Our methods include:
For our patients comfort, we also use the following techniques to make your dental experience comfortable:
Our Virtual Painless Injection
- Most of our patients never know they have received an injection. That is because of our virtually “Painless Injection” technique. A topical anesthetic is applied to the tissue with a cotton swab, and this anesthetic painlessly numbs the spot where the doctor will give you one of the most gentle injections.
Local Anesthetic for Pain Free
- Care Injectable anesthetics, such as Lidocaine, prevent pain in a specific area of your mouth during treatment by blocking the nerves that sense or transmit pain, therefore, numbing the tissue of the mouth. This causes the temporary numbness often referred to as a “fat lip” feeling. Injectable anesthetics may be used in such procedures as filling cavities, preparing teeth for crowns, or treating gum disease.
Post Treatment Comfort
- We want you to be as comfortable as possible after your care. We often send our patients home with a prescription of non-narcotic analgesics to relieve any post treatment discomfort. These include aspirin, acetaminophen, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen. For more involved procedures, a narcotic analgesic may be prescribed for your comfort.
Environmentally Friendly Office
Keeping up with the latest technology and having a high tech office is not only more efficient, it is better for you and better for the environment. For example, our digital radiography generates 90 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays, which is both safe and eco-friendly. Our CEREC treatments are also highly efficient. It is important that our patients know they have choices in choosing health care that is environmentally conscious. Our office takes pride in “thinking green” and inventing new ways around the office to conserve our resources.
Not only does digital charting, and record-keeping save paper, it is more accurate and efficient. Your health information is easier for our office to access, and easier to send by email when needed. Having a paperless office makes tracking changes to your health and dental history both time and energy efficient.
Insurance & Payment Options
Your dental visits can be paid for by cash, check, or credit card at the time of service. We also accept most major dental insurances and the Care Credit Card. To discuss your payment options, insurance coverage, or inquire about financing with CareCredit, please call (707) 763-2682.
