What is painless dentistry?

Painless dentistry is a combination of perfected techniques to ensure that patients are comfortable throughout the procedure. Often, patients avoid going to the dentist because they are fearful of receiving injections. However, Dr. Hakim and his staff are able to administer anesthesia both painlessly and effectively. Through the use of “Miracle Anesthesia” techniques, the patient often does not even realize that anesthesia has been administered.

In addition to administering anesthesia painlessly and proceeding with a comfortable procedure, Dr. Hakim and his colleagues take their time in using clear, effective communication to ensure that the patient fully understands their options and plan for treatment. Therefore, the patient is able to feel more confident and relaxed about beginning any procedure. This effective and open communication helps relieve anxiety. You could benefit from painless dentistry for a variety of procedures, including:

  • Fillings
  • Root canals
  • Dental implants
  • Bone grafts
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Extractions

Anesthesia (numbing medicine) blocks the nerve sensations in your teeth and jaw during your dental work, so you don’t feel the pain. However, many people also experience stress and anxiety about undergoing a procedure at the dentist and find it hard to relax.

What does painless dentistry involve?

There are several painless dentistry options. You can inhale a gas like nitrous oxide, take oral sedative medications, or have the sedative through an intravenous (IV) injection. Local anesthetic injections enter your gums or jaw, and you can have a numbing gel applied to the injection site as well.

Although you might doze a little, sedation doesn’t put you to sleep like a general anesthetic. Generally, you’ll be awake, but you will feel peaceful and relaxed. You might be so calm you don’t even remember every part of the procedure afterward.

The specific sedatives and anesthetics Dr. Hakim gives you vary depending on factors like:

  • The procedure
  • Your general health
  • Your age
  • Any history of allergies
  • How anxious you feel

At Miracle Dental Implants & Orthodontics, the team has extensive experience in making sure patients are comfortable and free of pain throughout their procedure. Dr. Hakim even has his own “miracle anesthesia” technique.
