Your Comfort Comes First

At Avent Ferry Family Dentistry, we take the time to get to know you, and explain all the available treatment options so that you can feel confident about your treatment program and confident in your smile!

Your dentist always begins by making sure you are comfortable, offering the latest advancements in sedation dentistry for those patients who find sedation helpful. We are now able to complete many procedures, from root canals to crowns, and even deep cleanings, while patients are mildly sedated and relaxed, avoiding the anxiety and stress that can be associated with long or repeated treatments.

Our 3-Step Comfort Injection Technique

Step 1: High-Strength Numbing Gel

We use a high-strength topical gel that provides profound numbing of the gums. This gel is made of 20% Benzocaine, and it is applied before an injection is given to help eliminate any initial “pinch” that might otherwise be felt from the point of the needle.

Step 2: Warmed Anesthetic

Avent Ferry Family Dentistry is proud to offer dental technology specifically designed to bring anesthetic solution to body temperature just before an injection for your optimal comfort. When normal room-temperature shots are given, the body tends to amplify the pain felt from the colder anesthetic being pushed into the gums. Warming the anesthetic can significantly reduce this discomfort. This step has been shown to decrease instances of pain felt when receiving a shot.

Step 3: Our High-Tech Secret Weapon

A revolutionary new technology called the DentalVibe is the secret weapon of our 3-Step Comfort Process. Avent Ferry Family Dentistry is one of the few practices in the area using DentalVibe, which is a high-tech device that provides soothing vibrations to the gums during an injection. When we use the DentalVibe device, patients don’t even realize that they’ve received shots! How does it work? Vibration signals travel to the brain faster than pain signals do, so DentalVibe’s vibrations reach the brain first and essentially block the sensation of pain from ever being felt. The result is astounding to most patients, but especially those who have always felt fearful of dental injections. When we use DentalVibe, patients are amazed and truly thankful for the amount of comfort they feel during injections. Come in and experience the difference for yourself! When we take care of you and your smile, we want you to feel comfortable every step of the way.

Gentle Dental Care

To us, the only way to provide excellent care and wonderful patient experiences is with a soft touch. We take this very seriously, going above and beyond to make sure our patients are comfortable. If you feel nervous about or even afraid of dental treatment, you’re not alone. It’s actually quite common. Our goal is to always provide compassionate, gentle care.

Sedation Dentistry

For some patients, being sedated during their dental appointment is important. In most cases, we’re able to give our patients an oral medicine that totally relaxes them and allows them to rest during their visit. We do not provide nitrous or other gas sedation methods. We then complete as much of their treatment as possible, after which they regain alertness feeling comfortable and refreshed.

When talking with you about sedation dentistry, we will review your health history, including medications you are taking and habits such as alcohol consumption and smoking. We take all factors into careful consideration when planning treatment, and we’ll go through the proper preparation steps with you prior to your dental sedation visit. Your comfort and safety are both of utmost concern to us.
