DentalVibe in Richardson
If you suffer from anxiety related to the dentist, you’re certainly not alone. In fact, it’s estimated that a third of Americans (or as many as 40 million people) put off necessary dental care as a result of their fear. And a large source of that anxiety? A fear of discomfort related to needles. This fear can make receiving local anesthesia before necessary procedures a difficult, stressful task for many patients.
Fortunately, the team at Breckinridge Dental & Orthodontics offers a state-of-the-art solution for easing discomfort and anxiety related to needles. It’s called the DentalVibe, and it’s already improved the dental experience of millions of patients worldwide. Will you be the next to enjoy the soothing effects of the DentalVibe? Keep reading to learn more about how this revolutionary tool eliminates needle discomfort.
How the DentalVibe Works
Few people enjoy receiving injections, but for some, the mere thought of a needle nearing their skin or gum tissue can be unbearable. If that sounds familiar to you, you need the DentalVibe. It’s a small tool that works by applying a gentle vibration to the gum tissue surrounding the treatment site at the same time as local anesthesia is injected into the gum. It’s a new concept based on research that shows when vibration and an injection occur at once, the vibration sensation reaches the brain first -- blocking subsequent signals to prevent discomfort resulting from the injection.
And in addition to blocking pain signals to the brain, the DentalVibe’s soothing noise provides an added distraction for nervous patients. Its vibration also helps to disperse the anesthesia more quickly, for faster results.
When We Use the DentalVibe
The DentalVibe can be used in a number of dental procedures. In fact, it’s effective in eliminating pain any time local anesthesia is administered, like in the following routine dental procedures.
- Routine fillings
- Root canal therapy
- Tooth extractions
- Cosmetic procedures involving local anesthesia
There are no specific requirements to be a candidate for the DentalVibe, and patients of all ages can benefit from its soothing relief.
