Our Three Phase Approach to Patient Comfort
At Prosper Smiles Family Dentistry, we take your comfort seriously. We understand that many patients have a particular fear of oral injections, yet this type of injection is an absolutely crucial part of many dental care procedures. That’s why Dr. Vimal Patel developed a phased approach to making oral injections pain-free:
3 PHASE APPROACH TO PATIENT COMFORT
- Phase 1: Numb The Area
Dr. Patel applies a high-strength anesthestic gel to the site. Within a few seconds, the tissues have numbed significantly.
- Phase 2: Warm The Anesthetic
Studies have demonstrated that heating an anesthetic to a temperature that approximates normal body temperature significantly reduces the "sting" associated with cool or room temperature anesthetic.
- Phase 3: Utilize The Dental Vibe
When applied to the injection site, this innovative device emits high-frequency vibrations that essentially block the brain's pain receptors. With "Dental Vibe," patients feel little more than soothing pulsations.
Get Back to Normal in Record Time
Dr. Patel also proudly offers OraVerse®, a revolutionary new product that can help you return to your normal activities after a dental procedure without the hours of numbness. If you’ve ever had a dental procedure like a filling or a crown placement, then you’re familiar with the hours of numb lips and tongue you have to endure after the procedure. In most cases, talking, eating, and even controlling your saliva can become a difficult and embarrassing challenge. In clinical studies, OraVerse® was shown to help patients return to normal lip and tongue function in half the time. Talk to Dr. Patel about this incredible method for getting back on track after your dental visit.
Little Luxuries Make a Big Difference
We take our patients’ comfort seriously and we have gone to every effort to let that level of care shine through. Our waiting room offers a free Internet Cafe, so you can enjoy browsing the web or you can complete your new patient forms on our fully-equipped computer stations while you wait. We even provide a Keurig coffee maker if you’d like a fresh cup of coffee (including Starbucks®). Our lobby even features a kid-friendly waiting room stocked with toys, movies, and video games so you don’t have to worry about entertaining your little ones while they wait for an appointment. Once you sit down in our ergonomically designed exam chairs, you will have several more comfort options, including:
- Neck pillows and blanket
- Soothing, warm scented towels to freshen up after the visit
- Wall mounted TV's featuring Netflix® to help take your mind off of your procedure
- Nitrous oxide sedation to help you relax during your procedure. For more information about our sedation dentistry options, please click here.
