Most patients who come into the dental surgery are extremely nervous. In fact, many report a phobia of needles and are therefore reluctant or anxious to have local anaesthetic injections. Of particular concern are palatal infiltrations, which many patients find to have the greatest amount of discomfort of pain. In this video, Dr Howard Gluckman demonstrates a technique that can reduce the discomfort from a palatal injection, making it painless for the patient. This can serve to be a great technique you can use in everyday practice and help develop great trust and confidence between you and your patients.
