At Yang Dental Group, we always make sure before any procedure that the patient is completely comfortable and that they know exactly what is being done. We have excellent anesthetic techniques as well as a machine called the wand which greatly reduces any discomfort from typical injections. When the tooth is numb, then we use a dental handpiece to remove the decayed portion of the tooth, being as conservative as possible. Finally, the cavity is filled with a tooth colored resin material that is placed with a hand instrument and shaped and then cured with a blue light. Depending on the size of the cavity, the procedure can be completed in as little as 10 minutes and sometimes without any anesthetic. There should be little to no pain whatsoever with this procedure!
