Pain Management

Topical Anesthetic

Topical anesthetic is applied with a cotton swab on the gums to reduce the discomfort of an injection and to ensure that our patients are as comfortable as possible when receiving local anesthetic.

Local Anesthetic

Local anesthetic is the numbing agent injected into a specific area of the mouth to prevent discomfort during dental procedures.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is safe for children and adults and is often used to help reduce anxiety or strong gag-reflexes in our patients. In some instances, nitrous oxide can be used in place of local anesthetic.
