are often uncomfortable, but you should never experience excessive pain during any procedure. Dr. Goldberg
offers a wide array of products and techniques
to alleviate pain. Anytime a patient indicates that they are experiencing pain or anxiety, Dr. Goldberg uses the appropriate methods to reduce or eliminate it. First, he uses topical anesthetics to numb the area where injections will take place. Then, local anesthetics such as lidocaine or other similar products are injected to deaden nerves in the area where a procedure will take place. If necessary or desired by the patient, nitrous oxide, and/or oral sedation such as Valium or Ativan can be administered. Finally, if a patient desires full general anesthesia, Dr. Goldberg consults with an anesthetist, who administers the anesthesia and monitors the patient throughout the procedure. Distracting music and television are available to patients in all of our comfortable treatment rooms.
In addition, the patient can see the images for themselves and better understand their diagnosis and procedure. Digital images also provide excellent evidence to gain procedure acceptance from your insurance company.
Rotary Endodontics uses a specially-designed electrical hand-piece to perform root canals. This tool makes the root canal process easier and faster than was previously possible.
There are two types of dental hand-pieces – air-driven and electric. Electric hand-pieces are much stronger, more accurate, and more controllable than air-driven tools, since electric motors drive the tools directly, rather than air driving them indirectly. The doctor can therefore remove decay at a faster pace, reducing the time it takes to complete a procedure.
