Most of us at one point or another will need some kind of pain control during a dental procedure. Depending on the severity of the procedure, local anesthesia might be necessary. But traditional anesthesia delivery methods, paradoxically, can cause significant discomfort or even pain, and some people greatly fear needles. Our CompuDent® delivery system can eliminate the pain and fear associated with anesthesia.
Traditionally, local anesthetic has needed to be delivered via bulky and, for some people, scary-looking syringes. While effective, this method can sometimes lead to collateral numbing of unrelated areas of the mouth. It also often causes pain before the medication takes effect. The CompuDent system aims to put an end to discomfort related to anesthesia by providing precise, painless delivery.
The system uses a small, easy-to-control wand to deliver medication only where it is needed, even only a single tooth in the case of something like a filling. The needle is small and non-invasive, eliminating the discomfort of traditional injections. Medication can also take effect quicker.
CompuDent has been used by dentists for nearly 20 years to provide painless anesthesia delivery to patients all over the country. If you would like to learn more about this or any of the other ways we take care of your comfort needs at Pamela Crumrine DDS, please call our Beaver, PA, office today. You don’t need to let discomfort or fear of injections keep you from getting the care your smile needs.
