Our High-Tech Secret – The Dental Vibe

For many patients, getting a dental injection is a primary source of fear or anxiety. At Smile Avenue Family Dentistry, we’ve invested in cutting-edge technology to address this common concern. When it comes to receiving a local anesthetic injection, our dentists use DentalVibe. This high-tech device is able to essentially trick the brain and block the sensation of pain from ever being felt. DentalVibe can be used on patients of all ages. It works by sending gentle vibrations to the gums during the injection. These soothing signals travel to the brain faster than pain signals. Thus, many patients never even realize the dental shot was given. Beyond our DentalVibe secret weapon, we also use high-strength numbing gel and warm anesthetic solution to prep you for a truly painless procedure.

Professional dental care is critical for the health and beauty of your smile. If you avoid or neglect going to the dentist due to fear of pain, we can help. At Smile Avenue Family Dentistry, we are proud to be able to provide painless dental injections and other advanced techniques to create a comfortable and rewarding experience. Your time in the dental chair is nothing to fear when choosing our Cypress dental office. Contact us today to schedule an appointment or to learn more about our comfort injection strategies.

Our 3-Step Comfort Injection Technique


High-Strength Numbing Gel

High-Strength Numbing Gel

The first step is to numb the gums of the treated site with a high-strength topical gel. Our special numbing gel is fast-acting and made of 20% Benzocaine. This ingredient is what helps to eliminate the unwanted “pinch” sensation that is normally felt during a dental shot.

Warmed Anesthetic

Next, we take the time to warm our anesthetic solution. The increased temperature is known to reduce discomfort during injections by allowing the gums to receive the anesthetic more quickly and smoothly.
