I’m a baby when it comes to pain. Will my procedure hurt?

“Will my procedure hurt?” is a question we hear all the time.

We understand! We don’t particularly enjoy the time when we have to sit in the dental chair either. That is foremost in our minds when we are treating patients, and you will be pleasantly surprised to discover that we have a few tricks up our sleeves when it comes to making sure you are comfortable in the chair.

We want your visit to be comfortable, and that means we do what we can to ensure that your time in the dental chair is as free of stress and pain as possible. If you are getting a local anesthetic, we will apply a numbing agent to your gums beforehand so you won’t feel it. This will ensure you are comfortable for the entire procedure. The only thing you will experience is a bit of noise, perhaps some pressure, and a little spray from the water.

Another thing we find that is helpful for our patients is that we are very clear on exactly what your treatment will entail. Knowledge is power—and we do what we can to make sure you are educated on any procedures before they happen.
