Your comfort is our highest priority. In addition to refreshments, television, headphones and blankets, we have a multi-step approach to patient comfort during treatment.
The gate control theory of pain states that non painful input “closes the gate” on painful input. With the use of vibration during injections, we are able to confuse the body and block painful stimuli.
Traditional anesthesia is almost thirty degrees below body temperature. This can cause a painful response during injections. At Bent Creek Dental, we warm anesthesia to body temperature, eliminating this discomfort.
