We understand that dental treatment can be uncomfortable for adults and kids, but it doesn’t have to be! We have many ways to relieve the discomfort of dental treatment at Vivid Dental, so let us make your visit easy.
There are three things we use to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
– Topical Anaesthetic
This is gel or cream applied to your gum to topically numb that spot, so you will feel nothing when we give the local anaesthetic injection.
– Local Anaesthetic
This is the part most people fear – the dreaded needle! However at Vivid, we use ‘The Wand’ which is a machine that slowly drips the anaesthetic through the needle, making it virtually painless. The local anaesthetic will take effect very quickly and have your gums, lips and cheeks feeling numb.
– Happy Gas
We also offer happy gas to our more nervous patients or children having more complex procedures. The happy gas is completely safe and non-toxic, and wears off very quickly once it’s turned off. It helps patients feel relaxed, warm and fuzzy and often giggly.
Feel free to ask for any of these options at your next appointment.
