Patients are really nervous about getting injections. That's one thing that I've been able to do well. I use a gel that pre-numbs your gums, I go slow, and I get a lot of compliments about that. 'Oh, I didn't really feel that.' 'Oh look, I'm getting numb already.' 'It didn't hurt. That's great.' That's one of the big things.
The other part of it is the dental drill. I have the quietest drills, but they're still noisy, so if that sound still bothers you, we have this range of things between nitrous, pills, or the anesthesiologist to make your visit here comfortable. As we work through the process, then they realize they have control over the situation. We're not going to strap them down and make them do anything that they don't want to have done. It tends to get relaxed. A lot of folks need some sort of medication to help get through this process, and that's okay. We'll do that and get that set up for you.
