On multiple teeth, Dr. Toomey uses a specialized technique to offer virtually painless anesthesia. This nerve block can be reversed, so you do not have to return to work or continue your day with a droopy lip. If you are particularly nervous, he can also prescribe oral medication to relax you and to help the local anesthesia last longer.
The CompuMed® instrument, also known as The Wand, allows injections that do not numb the lips, face and muscles of expression. Whether injections make you nervous or not, The Wand helps us provide a more effective anesthetic delivery and often a faster onset of anesthesia.
