Will my tooth extraction hurt?
We pride ourselves at Trinity Dental Care on providing the most comfortable dentistry possible, especially when we perform surgical procedures, such as implant placement or dental extractions, in our Westwood, NJ dental office. We know that these are some of the procedures that patients become anxious about and want to make sure they are as painless as possible.
We accomplish this in a few different ways.
We complete a full medical history. If you have had difficulty getting numb in the past, this is a great time to let us know. We can adjust your treatment accordingly.
We discuss exactly what to expect. Knowing what your procedure entails and how long it might take will reduce anxiety. We can leave out many of the details that you find distressing. Don’t worry. You are in good hands.
We offer sedation dentistry. Did you know that stress hormones counteract many types of local anesthetic? Sedation dentistry takes the stress out of your procedure. It is especially useful for long appointments and for patients who have trouble with a gag reflex. Sedation dentistry allows us to complete more treatment in a single appointment.
If you have questions or concerns about dental extractions, contact our Westwood, NJ dental office for more information or to meet with one of our gentle dentists.
