One of the main reasons people love our office is because we do EVERYTHING possible to make sure you don’t feel a thing! One of my goals is to make pain, fear, and anxiety, when going to the dentist, be a thing of the past! I personally have a low tolerance for pain. I don’t want to hear, “This will only hurt a little.” No, that’s not good enough for me. As far as I’m concerned… I Don’t Want It To Hurt At All! I’ve always hated even the prick of that darn needle …but… there is now a way I can give your kids an almost 100% pain-free injection!

We know that some patients get more nervous than others do at the mere sight of a needle and syringe. I know I do. That's why I now perform all anesthetic injections with a revolutionary system called “The MAGIC WAND”, a Computer Controlled Local Anesthesia Delivery System!
 

  • It doesn't look like a syringe.
  • It doesn't hurt like a syringe.
  • And it works better than a syringe.
  • A better injection for all patients.

Whether injections make you nervous or not, “The MAGIC WAND” helps us provide a more effective anesthetic delivery. Your kids are more comfortable throughout the procedure, and we use new techniques so they won't experience the lingering numbness of their tongue, lips and face.

How often should I change my child’s toothbrush? This is a very important question, one that we do not get asked often enough. Well my answer is, “We should ALL change our toothbrushes every three months for optimal oral health, and anytime immediately after an illness, and definitely when the bristles are no longer perfectly straight”. In a survey by Colgate-Palmolive, only 8.6% of consumers comply. In fact, the survey shows that most Americans replace their toothbrushes every 9 months. Can you believe that? I keep my car cleaner than that. When I read that I thought about something my mom used to say to me as a kid, ‘Don’t stick that in your mouth. It’s filthy’. But now we do that with our own toothbrushes. The typical toothbrush is reused for months, never cleaned thoroughly, and usually is stored under warm, moist conditions perfect for bacterial growth”..... “This little piece of plastic, which is the very basis of home dental care, repeatedly is plunged into one of the dirtiest parts of the body (eeew). More than 300 kinds of sugar bugs (germs) thrive in the human mouth.”

Researchers have established that thousands of germs can grow on toothbrush bristles and handles. Most are harmless members of the mouth’s microbial zoo; others are cold and flu viruses, the herpes virus that causes cold sores, staphylococcus bacteria responsible for many ear, nose and throat infections, the Candida microbe that causes thrush, and bacteria that can cause gum disease. Bottom line, after a while, toothbrush bristles wear down and become breeding grounds for bacteria. By replacing their toothbrushes more often, we can prevent a lot of illnesses, including tooth decay. All of this lead me to state the following: “Patients of Dr. Stella’s FUNtastic Dental & Orthodontics should never have to purchase another toothbrush ever again!” Basically, with the economy the way that it is, and with the research percentage as low as it is, any patient of Dr. Stella’s FUNtastic Dental & Orthodontics can walk into our office any time and ask for a FREE BRAND NEW TOOTHBRUSH as often as necessary, no questions asked. Whether after an illness, or the bristles are no longer perfectly straight, or they lost theirs, or the dog got it, or your little brother scrubbed the toilet bowl with it, come in for a FREE toothbrush anytime. And that includes parents too. WOW! Now that we will provide FREE YEAR-ROUND TOOTHBRUSHES for as long as you are a patient of Dr. Stella’s FUNtastic Dental & Orthodontics!.......I wonder what’s next, FREE 50” Plasma TV’s??.....oh wait, we already do that. Learn more about that on our website www.FUNtasticDental.com.
