Will my extraction hurt?
We never want to hurt our patients.
Dr. Patrick Carter takes his time making sure you feel completely comfortable for your treatment. Our Hopewell Family Dentistry philosophy incudes the idea that dentistry can be pain-free, and we strive for that goal with every patient.
Even if you have difficulty getting numb, we offer solutions. Did you know that stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol can counteract anesthetic and make it harder for you to feel completely numb? It’s true, and it’s not your fault. If we address your anxiety first, using sedation dentistry, getting numb and staying numb throughout your treatment should be no problem.
Even services such as extractions, root canal therapy, and dental implant placement can go smoothly and feel just like having a filling. Dr. Carter is also great at giving injections. You will hardly know it is happening.
Making sure you are comfortable is a top priority. At our Anderson, SC dental office, we take our time to do it right so you can relax, feel confident in the care you receive in our office, and even have a positive experience when receiving dental treatment.
If you have concerns about something hurting, let us know! That way, we can learn a little more and make sure we treat you right.
