Pain Management Amenities
Emotions can be high during an emergency dental visit. Whether you are in a great deal of pain from an infected tooth or your child has knocked out a tooth on the playground, it is understandable that you are scared and anxious. However, at Smile Avenue Family Dentistry, we offer extra pain management strategies to help you feel at ease. From our options in sedation dentistry to our painless injection technology, any type of procedure can be performed without sacrificing your comfort.
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
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.
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.
Our High-Tech Secret
The final step involves the use of DentalVibe, a revolutionary device that uses soothing vibrations to prep the gums for a painless dental injection. Our entire comfort injection process is performed within minutes and is proven safe for kids and adults.
Patient Reviews & Stories
My daughters and I had a great visit, Patrick Vuong is very friendly and makes us feel comfortable at every visit. The staff is also very friendly and helpful!!
I like that he is young, professional and takes the time to explain all the possibilities that best fits the patient.
He was great and made me feel very comfortable. He was quick and painless. Best dentist I've ever been to.
Great dentist. We happened across them due to HMO restrictions, but now I'd choose them even if I had a PPO.
I only had a small filling done but was very happy with Dr. Vuong for this procedure, and based on my experience thus far, I would recommend him to others.
