If you’re scared to visit the dentist, you aren’t alone. In fact, there are roughly 40 million people who are equally as scared to visit the dentist. As a family dentist in Richardson TX, we understand the complexity dental fears and phobias have on your oral care. We understand that the fear of procedures, the environment of the dental office, and the current state of your oral health all play a role in your lack of comfort at the dentist. We know that you have individual needs and concerns that prevent you from visiting the dentist, which is why we work with those fears to put your mind at ease. To make dental care more comfortable and to help you defeat your dental fears, we offer DentalVibe.
What is DentalVibe?
DentalVibe is a special tool we use to help take your mind off of your fears when visiting the dentist. We know that many people are fearful of dental infections and procedures, which is why DentalVibe is effective. DentalVibe is a tool that’s used to apply a gentle vibration to the gum tissue near the area we will be treating. The vibration is used at the same time we deliver a local anesthesia into the gum. This revolutionary new concept helps to reduce the feeling of the injection because research shows that your brain will process the vibrations before the sensation of the injection. As a result, this relieves the discomfort you feel during the injection.
Acting as a pain-blocking signal, the soothing vibration and noise of the tool essentially distracts you from feeling nervous. In addition, it helps to distribute the anesthesia more effectively for quicker results.
How Will I Benefit from DentalVibe?
DentalVibe can be used in many areas of dentistry to help promote a more enjoyable visit. We can use the soothing tool while performing routine fillings and even root canal therapy. We are even able to use the device during tooth extractions and certain cosmetic procedures that require the use of local anesthesia.
DentalVIbe is safe and effective for everyone, including children. There are no specific requirements that you must meet to be a candidate for the tool so patients young and old will benefit from the soothing vibrations. We have found that children have come to prefer the device when receiving dental injections, especially those who are fearful of needles. All in all, DentalVibe is the simple, safe, and effective solution to help you overcome your discomfort at the dentist.
