Anesthesia - Bloor West Dentist - Divider & Icon

Dr. I. Costache & Associates – your top Bloor and Dufferin dentist recommends anesthesia to help patients manage pain, discomfort and dental anxiety

At Galleria Dental your comfort, health and safety are all priorities. Our caring and professional team is committed to creating a stress-free, relaxing environment for you throughout your visit. From our waiting room to the dental chair, no detail is too small insofar as your comfort is concerned. We use anesthesia for patients to help with pain management, as well as to minimize discomfort, and anxiety in order to ensure an overall pleasant dental experience. We offer two types of anesthesia in our office.

Topical Anesthetic

We understand that needles can be a cause of stress for our patients. A topical anesthetic can be used any time the surface of the gum needs to be numbed. Numbing the area allows us to apply a local anesthetic with minimal discomfort for patients.

Local Anesthetic

Local anesthetics, in conjunction with effective topical anesthesia, have virtually eliminated the discomfort of numbing areas to be worked on. We use this depending on the procedure. By using the proper amount of anesthetics we ensure that your procedure is as comfortable as possible. Anesthesia should wear off shortly after you leave the office, so that you can continue on with the rest of your day without the numb feeling, and, of course, the problem that was plaguing your tooth earlier.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding anesthesia, please ask our staff on your next visit. Remember, your comfort is our priority!
