Same Day/Emergency Scheduling

We leave space in our schedule to handle dental emergencies. In many cases, we can see you the same day. Our extended hours from 7 am to 7 pm allow more time in our day to see our patients when they need us the most. We are here for you when you need urgent dental care at a moment's notice.
Pain Management Amenities
Pain is exaggerated by stress, which is why we strive to create a stress-free environment at Converse Dentistry. When you have a dental emergency, you may experience pain that is only made worse by the stress of going to the dentist. We help our patients relax during their emergency visit to our office. This is done with our many comfort amenities and calming chair-side manner, but we also have pain management options available. DentalVibe and sedation options can take the pain and stress out of your emergency dental care, letting you relax while we take care of your urgent dental need.
Our High-Tech Secret - The DentalVibe
The use of modern technology strongly facilitates our mission to provide comfortable and efficient dental care. When it comes to receiving injections, the DentalVibe is our secret weapon to painless dentistry. The DentalVibe is a high-tech device that provides soothing vibrations to the gums during an injection. These vibration signals are able to travel to the brain quicker than pain signals. Therefore, the DentalVibe technology essentially blocks the sensation of pain from ever being felt. This technology works so well that most patients are unaware of the fact that they just received a shot. To maximize your comfort during injections, we also use a numbing gel and warmed anesthetic solution to precede our DentalVibe technology. If you suffer from a fear of pain or injections at the dental office, we invite you to experience dental care in a whole new way at Converse Dentistry.
The health and beauty of your smile is a valuable investment. If you are avoiding restorative dental procedures that you need or cosmetic dental services that you want because of a fear of pain, Converse Dentistry is a place for you. We offer a full range of dental services with a gentle touch and advanced techniques so that you can achieve the smile you deserve without discomfort. Contact us today to schedule an appointment or for more information about our services.
Our 3-Step Comfort Injection Technique
High-Strength Numbing Gel
First we numb the gum locally using a high-strength topical gel comprised of 20% Benzocaine. The numbing caused by the Benzocaine allows the injection to be initiated without the usual "pinch" that patients find irritating. The numbing gel we use works quickly and is very effective.
Next, the anesthetic solution is warmed to body temperature. Warming the anesthetic to a suitable temperature tends to reduce the discomfort normally felt with injections. At room temperature the anesthetic solution is more readily felt by the patient as it enters the gum. This is what usually causes injection pain.
Our High-Tech Secret
The last step uses a new innovative technology called the DentalVibe. Very few dental practices in the Cibolo and Schertz areas are using this unique instrument. This device readies the gum for injection and soothes it by producing minute vibrations at the injection site as the anesthetic is being delivered.
