Will my procedure hurt?

All of the dentistry we provide at Norfolk County Dental Care is gentle and anxiety free.Woman with bad tooth pain before procedure with sedation dentistry in Norfolk

Often, a fear of dental treatment keeps patients away from the dental chair. As a result, dental conditions can worsen and become more severe. At our Norfolk dental office, we provide comfortable dentistry and offer sedation dentistry in Norfolk for patients who are receiving more complex treatment or who have a fear of the dentist.

Comfortable Anesthetic Options

Some people have difficulty getting numb. To make numbing a tooth more effective and gentle, we apply a topical anesthetic to the gums so you feel minimal discomfort. Most patients don’t feel anything.

Anxiety can interfere with how effective local anesthetic is because stress hormones disrupt the numbing agent. This is one of the reasons why we may recommend sedation dentistry for some patients.

Sedation Dentistry in Norfolk, MA

Sedation dentistry can take the anxiety out of your treatment. Not only does this option offer greater relaxation, but it also makes local anesthetic work better. Most patients report no discomfort and little to no memory of their treatment. It also makes time seem like it just flies by, which is why it's such a great option for more complex treatment options.

For patients who just need a little comfort and help relaxing, nitrous oxide may do the trick. It is our mildest form of sedation dentistry.
