The process mainly involves the use of an anti-anxiety drug which is given to the patient almost an hour before the treatment. The intake of this drug by the patient offers him mental relaxation and he do not gets affected by the treatment. One thing which, however, used to be kept in concern while using this procedure that a patient should be escorted by someone for going to the home after treatment.

5.Dental lasers: Use of dental lasers can be considered as the revolution in the field of pain free dentistry. It mainly involves the use of lasers for examining the condition of the teeth, rather than poking it. If your teeth is found affected by the cavity the sound of beep comes out from the teeth.
