Will my dental appointment hurt?
Despite the way dentists are depicted in movies and the media, the last thing we want to do is to hurt our patients! At Central Park Dental Clinic, we make patient comfort a priority because we know that dentistry does not have to be painful.
When you receive treatment in our office, we spend a little extra time talking to you about any dental anxiety you may have and helping you to relax. Our dentists are extremely gentle and give injections slowly because the pain from anesthesia can be decreased with a slower injection.
We make sure we give the medication time to take effect, and we will test the area several times to make sure you are completely numb.
When it comes to your actual procedure, you can count on our dentists to have a gentle touch. You are always in control of your own appointment, so if you ever feel discomfort, we encourage you to speak up – even if that means just raising your hand. We can always take a few extra moments to make sure you don’t feel a thing.
Most of our patients report that their treatment was comfortable and easier than they anticipated. We look forward to providing you with the high-quality, pain-free dental care you deserve.
