Dr. Doray’s Famous Virtually Painless Injection
Dr. Doray’s patients say she gives the most comfortable anesthetic injection they have ever received. That’s because of Dr. Doray’s famous virtually painless injection technique. A topical anesthetic gel 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. We don’t start any treatment until you are comfortable and properly anesthetized for the procedure. Dentistry today can be truly painless.

General Dentistry FAQs
How do I avoid future tooth cavities?
First, cut back on foods and drinks high in sugar and other starches. Next, always brush your teeth twice a day and floss once. Finally, see us every six months for an exam and cleaning. Decay often takes about six months to form, so a regular checkup can allow us to address areas at risk before a cavity even forms and you experience discomfort. A cleaning can remove plaque buildup, protecting your teeth.
Will a filling be enough to repair decay?
In most cases, yes. Sometimes you may have tooth damage that has progressed too much. Inlays, onlays, or a dental crown may be recommended in these cases.
If we brush and floss our teeth daily, why do we need general dentistry?
When you visit the dentist to assess your oral health, you are preventing oral diseases from developing, treating dental issues before they get worse, and more. Your teeth will not last as long as you without bi-yearly dental visits.
