The first part is just talking to them, and gaining their confidence. If you can do that, you're half way there. And if they understand we are going to do everything in our power, to make sure this doesn't hurt, it makes it a lot easier. On top of that, we use topical anesthetic whenever possible. We use a very potent one that helps to make injections a lot more comfortable. We go slow, we don't rush through things. We tell patients, if there's anything that's going on while we're doing this, let us know. Raise your hand. We want to make sure that whatever we do is comfortable, and works well for them. And if necessary, we can prescribe something to help them relax. Halcion for instance has been a godsend for patients that have dental anxiety issues, and it makes it so much easier on the patients. And easier on us too.
