Dental anxiety affects almost half of us…
Fear of going to the dentist is so common that many of us avoid dental exams for years. And then a small cavity becomes an abscessed tooth, or advanced periodontal gum disease takes over. When we finally do make that dental appointment, the problem has usually become painful and expensive.
Why do we wait? For many of us, it is fear of the dental needle, the numbing injection into our mouth. We may have had one painful novocaine injection 20 years ago, but that memory is still vividly alive, as if it happened just yesterday. This suffering is now needless, thanks to a new technological advance in pain control.
For those patients whose oral health has been compromised by fear of a painful dental needle, there is GREAT NEWS! A new device is now available to make oral anesthesia comfortable and painless. The Dental Vibe is a hand held device I use for all my patients in my Media PA dental office. It is cordless, about the size of your electic toothbrush. And like your electric toothbrush, it is comfortable and completely PAINLESS.
How does it work? The Dental Vibe emits a series of vibrations to the tissues of your mouth. You remain awake, but instantly your brain can process only the vibration. The pain pathways of your nervous system cannot handle vibration and painful signals at the same time and the vibration get there first. In our Media PA dental office, our patients report only a pleasant, mild buzzing feeling. At that moment, the local anesthetic can be injected without any awareness, taste or discomfort from the injection. Then your dental work can begin in comfort.
You no longer need to fear your dental visit…
If the thought of the dental needle has always been too much for you, your worries are over. At our Media PA dental office, we offer pain-free injection comfort technology to every patient, along with the highest quality restorative dentisty at affordable prices. Many of our patients have put off needed dental work, some for years, but they are now restoring their oral health. After their first Dental Vibe injection, they all say “Why did I wait so long? I worried for nothing!”
So if dental anxiety has plagued you…
Don’t wait and worry any longer. Ask whether your dentist uses the latest in comfort injection systems or find one who does.
