Many people simply do not go to the dentist due to a fear of needles. Missing out on dental visits can be seriously harmful for not only your teeth and oral health, but also for your general overall health as many oral diseases are the beginnings of major illness! Dr. Abeyta is here with pain free dental help.
As we have pointed out in other articles, the health of your mouth reflects the health of your body as a whole. Bacteria allowed to flourish in the teeth and gums can more easily enter the bloodstream to affect your health. We want you to come in for your checkups so we can catch these problems in the early stages!
We have two newer methods that offer pain-free dental help.
The DentalVibe is a unique tool that can help alleviate dental fear and anxiety, allowing you to get the dental treatment you need to stay healthy. This tool provides gentle vibration to the site of the dental injection. This vibration overloads the nerve that sends pain signals to the brain so that you don’t register the pain or discomfort from the injection. The sound of the vibration creates an added distraction, and the vibration also helps disperse the anesthesia once it’s injected so that it can work even faster.
By utilizing this tool, many are often unaware when the injection actually occurs.The greatest benefit of this system is for children. In fact, many patients have said that if such a tool had been available when they were younger, their dental fears would never have begun!
Another relatively new tool is called The Wand. This is simply a much smaller injection with a computer controlled anesthetic release allowing for several advantages:
We have invested in these latest tools because we want the best for you, and we want you to feel comfortable when you come for your visit!
