Our office uses "The Wand" for anesthetic delivery.  Many patients are anxious about receiving dental anesthetic (or dental "freezing").   "The Wand" replaces the traditional syringe in dentistry.  It is a computer-controlled anesthetic delivery system and makes this procedure much more comfortable.  It works by delivering the anesthetic at a slow controlled rate and low pressure.

Our office also offers anesthetic mouth rinse for dental cleanings.  If you've had uncomfortable dental cleanings in the past, this should singificantly improve your experience.  After rinsing your mouth for 30 - 60 seconds, the topical anesthetic will numb the inside of your mouth, including your gums, for up to one hour.  Please speak to one of our dental hygienists about this option.
