What Does Pain-Free Dentistry Mean?

posted in: Sedation Dentistry | 0

Some people fear going to the dentist because of their association with dental procedures and extreme pain. Fortunately, that perception is quite outdated, as technological advances have made pain-free dentistry a reality. Here at Stratman Family Dentistry, we only use the most state-of-the art technology to make your visit comfortable and relaxing.

Amenities

We want your time with us to be as relaxing as possible. This is why we offer complimentary beverages, soft pillows and blankets, warm scented towels, and TVs in your treatment room. The spa and the dentist’s office need not be two very different places.

Practically-Painless Injections

A painless injection not an oxymoron. As you unwind in our spa-like treatment rooms, we will apply a strong numbing gel on the injection site to lesson the pain of the injection. We will then administer the injection with a DentalVibe® device. This device uses ultrasonic vibrations to block the brain’s recognition of the sensation of pain, making it practically undetectable.

X-rays, Intraoral Cameras & Tomography

X-rays can be clunky and painful, but ours are not. We use low-radiation digital X-rays which are significantly quicker and much more comfortable than traditional X-rays. Moreover, our intraoral cameras make it easy for us to take a very close look at your teeth and also help us instruct you on your best treatment options. Finally, Dr. Stratman was one of the first Tucson-area dentists to use cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to take 3D models of teeth, soft tissues, and facial bones in order to take a better and closer look at the entire area and make better informed decisions on future cosmetic procedures.


If the fear of pain is preventing you from going to the dentist, we encourage you to explore our incredible amenities and state-of-the art, pain-reducing technologies to overcome your fears and take control of your dental health. Contact us to schedule your appointment today!
