What is painless dentistry

What is painless dentistry?

Many of us associate going to the dentist with fear and pain. For many years we’ve wished for painless dentistry in Johannesburg. So, going to the dentist does not have to be a traumatic experience we try to avoid at all cost anymore. Technology and science has come a long way the last couple of years.

Many people fear the sound of the drill and the injections or simply just the smell of the consultation room. Not that we can be blamed for that, because it is scary and mostly uncomfortable if someone starts scratching around in your mouth. So what exactly is painless dentistry? The whole idea behind painless dentistry is to give every patient optimum care, regardless of the intensity of the treatment, their fears, anxieties and phobias. This type of dentistry will restrict your pain and manage your comfort levels throughout each and every procedure.

Did you know that something as big and painful as a tooth extraction can actually be quite painless? The doctor will put a surface anaesthetic gel on to the gum and after a few minutes, the gum is totally numb. This allows the doctor to inject your gum – without the patient feeling it – and extracting the tooth.

Painless dentistry makes it so much easier to take your children to the dentist these days. Kids are usually afraid of the dentist as they don’t want to get hurt and they’ve probably heard stories from an older brother or sister or another family member about the dentist using long needles and noisy drills. As parents, we don’t want our kids to get hurt and if a filling can be done without pain, it’s great.
