What Is Painless Dentistry?

Many people struggle with dental anxiety, but if your fear comes from an expectation of pain, then you need to learn about painless dentistry.

It’s a term used to describe a new experience patients can get at the dentist’s office. Modern dentistry isn’t just concerned with treating your oral health issues; it also tries to ensure you have a positive experience from the moment you step into the practice.

How Is Painless Dentistry Achieved?

Painless dentistry isn’t just about medication. It aims to give patients a new and better way to get their oral health needs addressed.

While practices can have different ways to achieve painless dentistry, here are the steps taken here at Emergency Dentist of Austin: 

  • Anesthesia - This is the bare minimum any practice can do to create a painless experience for dental patients. It's uncommon to encounter places that don’t use something to numb the mouth before performing even common procedures such as treating a cavity. 
  • Sedation - This is completely different from anesthesia. While the former blocks the pain, the latter ensures you remain calm and relaxed throughout the entire procedure. Emergency Dentist of Austin offers several types of dental sedation to help patients have a painless and stress-free experience.
  • Compassion - In most cases, people coming to the Emergency Dentist of Austin cross the threshold scared and in a lot of pain. To create a true painless dentistry experience, patients are always met with a lot of compassion and empathy from every staff member to let them know they are in good hands.
