Doctors simply are not taught in school to give comfortable dental injections. Their injection technique is left to practice through trial and error. They’re not shown a better way. In their haste Doctors fail to manage two critical variables.
First most 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 too fast, tissue resistance or pressure is felt as pain. Combined you have a “pain wreck” waiting to happen. Manage these two variables and a comfortable dental injection is virtually guaranteed. Prior trauma with painful dental injections can leave some fearful and anxious. Patients anticipate that shots are going to hurt. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Then I devised an ultra low pressure slowly advancing technique to deliver the anesthetic. This results in minimal if any discomfort at all. Together I call it “The Worlds most comfortable injection technique.”
