For Your Comfort
We take measures to make sure that your visit is as comfortable as possible. We offer headphones and a large selection of music so that you can relax during treatment. Blankets and neck pillows also help you feel at home in our office.
For those who are wary of needles, Dr. Toney employs a method of giving local anesthesia that reduces the discomfort associated with an injection so that many patients feel no discomfort whatsoever. First, he uses a very strong topical anesthetic to numb the gums. Next, he gives the first injection with a warmed, local anesthetic that has a neutral PH so that patients don’t experience a burning sensation. Dr. Toney may add a different anesthetic in the area that is already numb to assure total comfort.
Some people have difficulty getting numb. Dr. Toney has this issue himself. Because he understands this problem from personal experience, Dr. Toney has studied the causes of this phenomenon and is very successful at numbing even the most difficult cases. Palatal injections are also more comfortable with a needle-less injector called a Madajet. Dr. Toney is one of the few dentists in the country to use this technique. We can also administer nitrous oxide or oral sedation for anxious patients.
Whatever your concern, rest assured that Dr. Toney and his staff will do whatever it takes to give you the best experience you’ve ever had in a dentist’s office. Every staff member in the office will treat you with genuine concern and a gentle touch.
The Technology We Use
In many ways, technology has revolutionized dentistry. From innovative diagnostic tools to the latest in treatment developments, dental procedures have improved drastically in recent years. As part of providing the most efficient and effective dental treatments, we use these tools:
- Intra-Oral Camera—Patients can see exactly what Dr. Toney sees when he examines your mouth.
- Laser Cavity Detection—A special diagnostic laser, DIAGNOdent, can identify tooth decay in its earliest stages, so we can treat it efficiently and effectively.
- Digital X-rays—Digital radiography means less exposure to harmful radiation, and that's better for you and the environment. Digital X-rays also allow us immediate access to images for more expedient diagnostics.
- State-of-the-art Sterilization Center—You can rest assured that our dental instruments and equipment are always disinfected and sterilized to meet or exceed CDC standards.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact us today. We look forward to providing you with the personal care you deserve.
