Will my procedure hurt?

Our highly trained team is very experienced in assisting patients to complete their treatment with minimal physical or psychological discomfort. From the moment you step into our office, care is taken to ensure you are as relaxed as possible. 

Many patients fear injections more than the procedure itself. You will be happy to know that we use a powerful topical anaesthetic to numb the area before applying a local anaesthetic via injection. This reduces discomfort and makes the entire process as painless as possible.

For particularly fearful patients or those with elaborate treatment plans, we also offer sedation dentistry by prescribing pharmaceuticals to induce relaxation. Once patients meet our team and develop a trusting relationship, they find that sedation is not necessary, as we will never proceed with a procedure unless you feel completely confident and comfortable.

If you have concerns about your dental appointment or have had a negative experience in the past, we invite you to share your concerns with us so that we can put your mind at ease. You are always in control of your care, and we will stop straight away if you ever feel uncomfortable in any way.

Your comfort is our top priority at Avid Dental.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
