How to Get a Painless Needle

Let’s face it, the thought of going to the dentist is enough to make anyone’s palms go cold and sweaty. Add the idea of getting a needle, and well, that will make a grown man tear. Let me tell you; it doesn’t have to be this way. Going to the dentist AND having needles can be painless!

We asked our dentists, and they say the key to giving a painless needle is to inject it really slowly for a longer period of time; almost always, this can guarantee a pain-free needle. Our dentists say that the needle itself is not the source of the pain it is the fluid that expands within the tissue. So by going slowly and injecting the contents slowly, the pain is minimalized.

At 860 Dental, our dentists can make sure they can provide a “wow” experience, not an “ow” experience.
