Painless Treatment

Nova Dental

Cosmetic & Family Dentist located in Newark, NJ & East Orange, NJ

Don’t let fear of pain keep you and your family from getting the dental care you need. The team of cosmetic and family dentists at Nova Dental offers painless treatment options at two office locations in Newark and one in East Orange, New Jersey. To find out how painless dental care aligns with your needs, book a visit online or over the phone at your earliest convenience. 

What is painless treatment in dental care?

Your teeth, gums, and bones have nerves running through them that communicate sensory data to your brain. This communication enables pain signals, which can be incredibly uncomfortable.

While many types of dental care do not involve any discomfort, some treatments can be painful. Working with a dental care team skilled in painless dentistry is important to help you get the care you need without undue pain or stress.

One way that NovaDental creates painless dental visits is through local anesthetics. These injectable medications eliminate all sensations in the treated area. You might feel a pinch or mild stinging sensation as the needle enters your gums or palate, but the numbing effect kicks in very quickly.

Once your dentist administers your local anesthetic injection, you won’t experience any pain in that area of your mouth. You might notice pressure as your dentist performs your treatment, but no discomfort.

Oral sedation relies on prescription medication to help you feel less anxious and a bit sleepy during your visit. Local anesthetic injections combined with oral sedation offer a great way to meet your dental health needs with ease.

What kinds of painless treatments are a good fit for dental care?

Any procedure that involves altering your tooth, gum, or bone tissue is a good fit for painless dental care. Some examples of treatments that might use this approach include:

  • Fillings
  • Root canal
  • Crowns
  • Dental veneers
  • Periodontal surgery (gum surgery)
  • Wisdom teeth removal
  • Extractions Endodontics

When you come in for your consultation, your dentist explains all of your painless dentistry options, giving you the details needed to make an informed decision about your care plan.

How can painless treatment help with dental anxiety?

Many people don’t necessarily look forward to dental treatment, but for some, anxiety makes it hard to get even routine dental care. If you postpone or avoid dental care, you have options that can help make visits less stressful. Oral sedation helps you relax and feel less tense throughout your visit.

Once you get to know the team at NovaDental and see how painless dentistry works, you might find yourself less anxious about upcoming visits, and begin to move away from the restrictions of dental anxiety.
