Dr. Ionescu takes great pride in the ability to administer painless
anesthetic injections. He realizes, though, that some people become
anxious just at the thought of receiving a shot. If you or a loved one
become nervous when you need dental care, we have a solution that will
relieve your stress.
By simply taking one pill that we give you an hour before your treatment, you will start to feel calm. You gradually reach a deeper level of sedation that makes you unaware of your treatment, but still able to respond to any questions. This type of conscious sedation works well for those with anxiety but also for those who have limited time for extensive work. Oral conscious sedation allows you to have more work done in one visit, instead of multiple visits.
We are pleased to offer a type of innovative anesthetization known as
the The Wand™. This utilizes a computerized system that administers a
very precise amount of medication. It also pre-anesthetizes the gum
tissue, so when the actual fluid is delivered, the area is already numb.
Patients are so amazed they actually exclaim, "I didn't feel a thing!"
The Wand is precisely controlled for accuracy to provide just the right amount of anesthesia you need. This can reduce numbness in the face, lips, and tongue. Imagine not having any more "fat lips" when you leave the dentist's office.
