Will my procedure hurt?
Our top priority is to make sure that our patients are comfortable during their procedures.
Dr. Stanford has been using a proven method to decrease any uncomfortable sensations during the numbing process. This method has even been mentioned in some of his reviews online.
Once our patients are numb, they do not experience any pain during their procedure because we use the best dental anesthetics. If at any moment during your visit you feel uncomfortable, simply raise your hand so we can stop and give more anesthetic if needed.
We understand that going to the dentist isn’t a relaxing experience for every patient. In fact, some patients feel fear or anxiety about dental procedures. Dr. Stanford understands how you feel, and he can talk with you about using nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, for your dental procedures.
Nitrous is delivered through a mask and works quickly to help you feel relaxed during your treatment. Some patients even feel euphoric, which is where the name laughing gas comes from! Nitrous is safe for children and can be used during most types of procedures.
Talk to Dr. Stanford if you would like to learn more about using nitrous during your dental appointments.
