The day that dentistry can be truly “pain-free dentistry” will be a great one.
One of the most common things dentists in the Ladera Ranch, Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo area hear is how much patients dislike coming because of the pain.
At Hales Parker Dentistry in Ladera Ranch we strive for you to have a pain-free dentistry experience and have as little discomfort as possible.
Dental Air Abrasion
Air abrasion is a tool used for cavities on the top of the tooth or shallow cavities.
When using air abrasion, anesthetic is not even necessary.
Using micro-particles and air, the cavity is removed without any pain sensation because there is no drill.
Air abrasion has many other benefits as well such as nearly doubling the bond strength of fillings and crowns in certain situations. This leads to stronger and longer lasting dentistry.
Wand Single Tooth Anesthesia System
Utilizing the Wand STA dental anesthesia device, Dr. Lincoln Parker is able to give possibly the most comfortable injection you’ve ever had. Without this pain-free dentistry practice, this is often the worst part of the procedure for many people who come in to our office near Mission Viejo. With the dental anesthesia device, the injection is handled extremely gently and many times pain free.
Another advantage to dental anesthesia is that it can numb single teeth instead of getting a large portion of your jaw numb. Patients love when they leave Dr. Parker’s office near Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo and don’t have to worry about a numb lip or tongue. When single teeth need to be restored, just the tooth can be numbed with the dental anesthesia wand.
