Our Doctors make every effort to administer local anesthetic in the most comfortable manner possible. We use state of the art anesthetic machines eliminating the need for a syringe and needle. In fact, we tell the kids that we don’t use “a shot” in our office. These machines coupled with nitrous oxide can make “numbing” the teeth nearly pain-less in almost all the children we treat. You will ask your dentist why he doesn’t use this machine on you. Once your child completes treatment, we will review post op instructions with you to insure that you know how to care for your child at home.
