Patients stay away from the dentist for a number of reasons.
One of the most common concerns we hear is that patients have difficulty getting completely numb before treatment. Dr. Michael Colangelo is experienced at anesthetizing patients completely, making dentistry more comfortable and enabling you to get the care you need without anxiety.
No one likes pain, and since every patient is different, we allow plenty of time for anesthetic to take effect before we begin. Simply put, if you are not numb, we will not start work. This promise eliminates the fear that many of our patients feel about dentistry.
Before using anesthetic, Dr. Michael Colangelo will first apply a professional-strength topical anesthetic. This makes the entire process painless because we actually numb your gums before we numb your tooth. With the advances that modern dentistry has made, there is no reason why you can’t expect dental care with no discomfort.
Are you still feeling apprehensive? Did you know that stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline can keep you from getting completely numb? Most of our fearful patients discover that they feel more comfortable in our office than any dental office they have visited before. We enjoy helping our patients enjoy comfortable dentistry in a fun, relaxing, and caring dental office.
