Dental Injections

Dental Injection - It doesn't need to hurt!

One of the biggest causes of dental phobia is fear of a dental injection.

Nobody really likes a dental injection. With modern day techniques and equipment, local anaesthesia in dentistry should not hurt. Dental anaesthesia and local anaesthesia is very important in the provision of painless dentistry. A painless injection technique sets us apart from other dentists. We love hearing compliments from our patients when we administer a dental injection.

We completely understand that our patients don't enjoy this aspect of dentistry. For this reason, we have invested time and training in order to make it the best experience we can. We have invested in tools and gadgets to make the process simple and pain-free. Our motto is to treat our patients as we would want our friends and family to be treated.

The Wand

We love gadgets at the Rock House Dental Practice. The Wand is one of our favourite ones! It is a small computer that looks like a pen and provides a totally pain-free dental injection. The dental anaesthesia is delivered very slowly into the tissues causing them to go completely numb. The dental anaesthesia is very targeted so only a small area of your mouth will go numb. The Wand even talks to you why you are having the local anaesthesia, however, the only downside is the american accent! In addition, it looks nothing like a syringe! So if the sight of a needle or a syringe is a major turn-off for you, this is the perfect solution.

Vibraject

Vibraject is a simple and safe tool to help make dental treatment free from discomfort. It works because the light pressure of a Vibraject dental injection signals the brain so that you don't feel any pain. Many patients don’t even know they have had a dental injection. All they remember is the buzzing sound, like the wings of a hummingbird.

Topical anaesthetics or numbing gel

Topical creams and sprays can help to partially numb the injection site before we give a dental injection.

Traditional techniques

There are a few traditional techniques that we use to make the dental injection easier. It’s important to note that most of the pain from an injection does not come from the needle stick; it comes from the injection of the anaesthetic into the underlying tissue. Firstly, the dentist will always take time over the process, slowly injecting really helps. Warming the anaesthetic solution is also a good idea. Finally, distracting the patient can often work well - we use this technique a lot with children.

Dental Sedation

If the above techniques do not work for you, then maybe dental sedation is an option. This is a treatment to help you relax during your appointment. Click the sedation page for more information.

    Ultimate Halloween horror today. I went to the dentist this morning. It was a long job. I was given a local anaesthetic, layed back horizontally in the chair. Various clamps and grips were fixed in my mouth to keep my mouth open and my head still. Above me were three... read more - 11/01/2016

    My dentist merged with the Rock practice a short while ago, and then moved on, so I had only had an initial inspection with the new dentist but found them most welcoming.

    I've never been to a dentist before even though I'm in my 20s. I've always heard of people hating their dental visits but Mr Nandra was fantastic! Very professional and pleasant, answered all my questions and explained everything in detail! Great experience!
    Hopefully my next appointment with the hygienist will...

    I came to the practice a couple of weeks ago for the first time. The staff were very professional and welcoming and made the whole experience comfortable. All staff took their time to answer my questions and made me feel at ease. Will definitely go back. - 7/26/2019

    Excellent first visit to the Rock Dental Practice. All the staff are friendly and professional. Particularly liked the 'real time' discussion about the Xray results - shown on a screen in the surgery a few minutes after they were taken. Can't get much better than that for patient care. - 2/01/2019

    I cannot recommend this dentist highly enough. They are kind, considerate and eminently professional. They were also nothing short of amazing when my autistic son needed s wisdom tooth removed. They were so expert and understanding with him they removed the tooth without the need for a general anaesthetic and... read more - 8/13/2019
