Michael J Nelson DDS

Is it going to hurt when you numb up my tooth?

Dr. Michael Nelson is experienced in delivering gentle, uncompromised care. With years of experience in pain-free dentistry, Dr. Nelson has learned that administering an anesthetic very slowly reduces the sting a patient may otherwise feel. Overall, numbing a tooth does not cause pain, but there may be slight pressure. However, this can also depend on the patient. 

Gentle, Pain-Free Dental Care 

Dentistry shouldn’t be painful, even though many patients believe that it is. However, this is a common misconception. People often associate dental pain with the dental procedure itself when it actually treats and relieves oral pain. Dental decay or disease can wreak havoc on your health without the appropriate treatment, resulting in more pain and discomfort. 

At the dental office of Michael J Nelson DDS, we use kindness and compassion to build rapport with our patients. We want you to know you can trust us and that you’re in very experienced and safe hands. Our St. Louis Park dental team is committed to clinical excellence and patient comfort, and we always strive to ensure you feel relaxed and at ease in our care.
