BOLD? – Maybe, but we hear it everyday. The vast majority of our patients report little to no pain. Some patients report minor discomfort with almost none reporting true pain. (You can hear testimonials from real patients here.)
How is this possible?! In order to change how dentistry is typically experienced, we have committed ourselves to changing how dentistry is typically delivered. We have developed processes that allow us to provide massive amounts of dentistry in the gentlest way possible.
Deep Sedation: Through our nurse anesthetist partner, DenTIVA, we are able to offer deep sedation for our patients, allowing us to do complex dentistry to quickly improve your circumstances while you take one long nap.
No shots: We avoid the use of local anesthetic. Yes, that means no shots! Anesthetic is a wonderful adjunct when needed, but we believe it should be avoided whenever possible. Why? Local anesthetic is a fluid that “blows up” the tissues as it is forced between them. It causes vasoconstriction of the blood vessels and thus decreases blood flow. By not using it we avoid unnecessary tissue inflammation from the initial injury and the delayed removal of the fluid due to vasoconstriction. Not to mention all the pricks in the tissue!
Laser Dentistry: We are laser certified prosthodontists and have the latest technology in shot free dentistry. The Solea Laser from Convergent Dental allows us to deliver spectacular dental results faster and without shots or pain.
IV administered medications: We provide IV administered medications during your procedure. These medications help you control the inflammatory response with very little to no medications to manage after your procedure.
