Doctors simply are not taught in school to give comfortable dental injections. Their technique is left to practice and trial and error. They’re not shown a better way. In their haste Doctors fail to manage two critical variables.
All popular anesthetic solutions used by dentists are acidic. They sting and burn when they are injected into tender tissue. Secondly, when the solution is delivered to fast tissue resistance or pressure is felt as pain. Combined you have a “pain wreck” waiting to happen. Manage these two variables and comfort is virtually guaranteed. Prior trauma with painful injections leaves patients fearful and anxious. Patients anticipate that shots are going to hurt. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Here’s my secret. 30 years ago I discovered a rarely used anesthetic that has virtually no burn or sting. The solution has a neutral Ph. Most anesthetics feel like putting alcohol or iodine on a cut. It stings like crazy. My special anesthetic feels like water on a cut. I’d disclose the name, but for now it’s my secret.
