It is interesting to know that people still feel that dental injections can still be painful.
There are now many techniques and innovations which are literally taking the pain out of dentistry treatments. Learn more.
One such innovation is a system discovered by a British researcher in dental sciences at Newcastle University.
He has created a pain-free jab to deliver anaesthetic to the gums without the patients feeling it.
His innovation is based on the fact that the normally acidic solution of most anaesthetics actually causes the stinging sensation during injection.
These solutions need to be acidic so that they can be stored for a certain time and still remain effective.
Smile with confidence
The research has led to an invention of a syringe which enables the anaesthetic to be mixed with a neutralising solution just before it is injected into a patient’s mouth.
Other more common methods involve special techniques to administer the anaesthetic so that the patient is comfortable throughout the process.
Dr. Bhavna Doshi, our Facial Rejuvenation Director created this technique years ago following her injection methods for facial injections to remove lines and wrinkles with dermal fillers. Continue reading.

Being afraid of the dentist is a well-known phobia.
People may have real phobias or may have had bad experiences in the past or when younger which are now preventing them from seeking help.
Common aspects of a visit to the dental practice would be fear of the dental injection or disliking the sound of a dentist drill.
According to a recent YouGov survey 45% of adults in the UK are unhappy with their smile, 56% would consider treatment to improve their smile, and a quarter make a direct link between their teeth and self-esteem.
These days people are not looking for suspiciously perfect teeth like gleaming white Hollywood nashers but something that is more appropriate and makes us feel good about ourselves.
Views on what constitutes a “perfect smile” have also evolved over the years.
