Anxiety Free Experiences
It’s important to know that during an extraction you’ll typically feel pressure, but you should never feel pain. And we work really hard to make sure that our patients are comfortable while we’re doing those procedures. We’ll place topical anesthetic before they get numb. While we’re numbing, we have like a little massager that we’ll use that helps to distract the nerve, so patients don’t notice that as much.
We ensure that, before we start treatment, that every part of the tooth, wherever it is that we’re going to be working, is profoundly numb and does not hurt. And then while we’re working, we make sure to let them know that they can raise their hand at any time, for whatever reason to let us know if something hurts, if they need something, if they just need to sit up, if they need a drink of water, you know, whatever it is. Our patients know that they can always raise their hand, and that we’ll stop and help them out with whatever they need.
