When general anesthesia is not necessary, but a pain-free option is needed, the needle free anesthetic, Kovanaze, and Brook West Family Dentistry may be your best option.
Anethesia : An Old Leap Forward
Rather like the Moon landing, anesthetics were a giant leap for humankind. There had been a time when a person had only a few options at their disposal when it came to receiving any kind of dental care. One could choose to “tough it out” and take the chance of an ever-increasing level of infection, or at the very least end up with a terribly unhealthy mouth full of rotting teeth. One also had the option of getting drunk prior to any dental procedures that they might need, which carried risks of excessive bleeding and poorly thought out actions.
Perhaps the scariest part of old-fashioned dentistry was the notion that one could merely endure the pain of a procedure, since until relatively recently in history, there was were no such things as anesthetics and painkillers. Going to the dentist still very unjustly ranks among the greatest fears of for many people, up there with public speaking and spending large amounts of time with a person's in-laws. Fortunately, needle-free anesthetic, using Kovanaze, has helped take the old-fashioned fear out of dentistry.
Even with the original advent of pain reduction, numbing agents, and even general anesthesia, there were is still a wide-spread, general fear and anxiety of going to the dentist. Going to the dentist's office was an exercise in several different types of worries. The first fear was that there would be something terrible going on inside a person's mouth, literally right under their nose. The second fear was that they would either have to be rendered unconscious for the dentist to do who knows what to them while they slept, or that they would have to endure a giant needle being thrust into their mouth. Then there is the sound of the dentist's drill, which has been used in horror movies and haunted houses for years.
One great thing about how Brook West Family Dentistry handles your overall experience, including the use of the Kovanaze spray, is that all of the traditional fears are gone. You can be conscious, pain-free, and worry-free, no matter what dental procedures lie ahead for your smile journey.
