We are an interesting bunch of people here on Earth. We can deal with incredibly stressful situations, even pain, and not flinch, but one mention of basic dental office procedures, and we are finished with the conversation. We don’t like our mouths to be messed with, and that’s ok. However, there are increasing ways for us to do the work we need to do without causing you discomfort! Take a look at three of our favorite pieces of technology that make you a more comfortable patient!
DentalVibe: In order to numb your gums and teeth, we often need to use a syringe to inject the solution into your gums. With DentalVibe, we can perform the injection while the skin is being gently vibrated, causing you to feel nothing except a gentle massage. The vibration helps the medication spread evenly and thoroughly.
DEXIS Transilluminator: Rather than checking your teeth for cavities with a probe, we use the DEXIS. This small wand evaluates your teeth and finds cavities before they are visible on the x-ray. That means a more comfortable filling procedure for you!
Soft Tissue Laser: In the past, something like gum reshaping or treating gum disease would be done with metal instruments. We now turn to dental lasers. Our soft tissue laser allows us to do the same work with minimal discomfort to you. In fact, the use of a dental laser will reduce swelling, bleeding, and general discomfort considerably.
Above are just three ways we can make you next visit more comfortable. We have many more reasons to show you! Contact us today to set up your next appointment. Talk with us about your previous dental worries, and we will show you why you can rest comfortably in our chair!
