No-Shot Dentistry in Greenville, TX

We understand that some people have anxiety based around going to the dentist. At Grantham Family Dental we do our best to provide quality dental care while making you feel comfortable.

Thankfully, more dental offices have embraced technology in the provision of pain-free and non-invasive dental care. At Graham Family Dental, we proudly offer no-shot dentistry to our patients. 

No-shot dentistry utilizes the latest Waterlase system—a modification of laser dentistry that combines laser energy with water and air, allowing the dentist to forego the drill, shots, and sometimes, anesthesia.

If you’ve always been scared of getting treated for cavities or gum disease, schedule an appointment with our dentist in Greenville, TX for an experience that’s guaranteed to make you look forward to (or at least less fearful of) dental offices.

Laser Dentistry at Graham Family Dental

During your dental procedure, our dentist in Greenville, TX, will use the Waterlase system to direct a highly targeted light beam (laser) to the affected part of your oral cavity. The Waterlase not only directs high energy light to your tooth but also contains water to hydrate and cut through your tooth painlessly.

During treatment, you’ll feel minimal pain and discomfort. Depending on the procedure, our dentist may forego anesthesia, but only if you’re comfortable without it.

Laser dentistry is available to all patients, as long as the dentist determines that the procedure you require can be successfully treated using laser technology.

No- Shot Dentistry FAQ

What is no-shot dentistry, and how does it work?

Cross Icon Image

No-shot dentistry refers to dental procedures that do not require injections or traditional anesthetics. Instead, it may use techniques like electronic anesthesia, air abrasion, or laser treatments to numb the area or perform procedures painlessly. These methods aim to provide a more comfortable experience for patients who are anxious about needles and shots.

Is no-shot dentistry effective for all types of dental procedures?

Cross Icon Image

No-shot dentistry is effective for many types of dental procedures, especially minor restorations and surface treatments. However, its suitability varies depending on the complexity of the procedure and the patient's pain threshold. Our dentist can determine if no-shot options are appropriate for your specific treatment.

What are the benefits of no-shot dentistry compared to traditional methods?

The benefits of no-shot dentistry include reduced anxiety and discomfort for patients with needle phobia, no residual numbness after the procedure, and often a quicker and quieter dental experience. It's also beneficial for treating children or patients with special needs who may be particularly sensitive to injections.

How do I know if I'm a candidate for no-shot dentistry?

You might be a candidate for no-shot dentistry if you have a fear of needles, require only minor dental work, or prefer a less invasive and more comfortable dental experience. Our dentist will assess your overall health, dental needs, and anxiety level to determine if no-shot options are suitable for you.
