Pacifico's Special Sedation Dental Care Program
Many of Dr. Pacifico's patients prefer to sleep through their dental

dental needs taken care of in just one appointment. If this sounds

Famous Virtually Painless Injection
Most of our patients never know they have received an
injection. That's because of Dr. Pacifico's famous virtually "Painless
Injection" technique. A topical anesthetic is applied to the
tissue with a swab. This anesthetic painlessly numbs the spot where the
doctor will give you one of the most gentle injections.

lip" feeling. Injectable anesthetics may be used in such
procedures as filling cavities, preparing teeth for crowns or
treating gum disease.
- Treatment Comfort
We want you to be as comfortable as possible after your care.
We often send our patients home with a supply of non-narcotic analgesics
to relieve any post treatment discomfort. These include aspirin, acetaminophen and non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen. For more involved procedures, a
narcotic analgesic may be prescribed for your comfort.
