The pain many people associate with dentistry is possibly in the imaginations. Today's dentistry truly can be pain free. Modern anesthetics and injection techniques literally block all pain to any are of the mouth. Even the needle need not be felt if you have chosen the right dentist. By rubbing an anesthetic gel on your gums before slipping in the needle you will barely feel any discomfort. Receiving dental anesthesia is actually more comfortable than having your annual flu shot. You'll actually suffer a lower pain threshold visiting your dentist than from mosquito bites in your back yards. What most people assume to be a painful experience is really at most one of only mental discomfort. We use the newest dental anesthetics to achieve profound numbness. We also have reversal agents to remove the numbness after we are done.
