When it comes to receiving local anesthesia, the team at Metro Dental Associates knows that many patients do not like shots. As such, they add the Onpharma Onset pH buffer in their anesthetics to help remove the sting from shots. To further decrease the sting of the injections, they add an anesthetic warmer in order to raise the temperature of anesthetic liquid to match a person's normal temperature. Moreover, to see to it that patients remain at ease while in the dental chair, they offer them oral medication for light sedation. They also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas), with no extra charge. This measure reduces patients' anxiety but keeps them fit for activity afterward.
