It can be hard to feel them if dental fear or anxiety is keeping you from getting the dental care you need and deserve. For many people it’s a simple fear of needles that keeps them away from a dentist office. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
We employ the newest dental technology at the Office of Andrew Dine, DDS, in Fairfield, OH, including the revolutionary DentalVibe injection delivery system. DentalVibe is changing the face of dentistry because it allows Dr. Dine to administer local anesthesia without the pain or discomfort caused by a traditional syringe.
It today’s post of our dental health blog, we’re going to look at how avoiding dental care due to fear or anxiety can cost you your smile and lighten your wallet. Then we’re going at how DentalVibe can make your next restorative dentistry procedure far more comfortable. Let’s get started!
The Cost of Avoiding Dental Care
Dental problems such a decay, damage, or gum disease do not get better on their own. If you develop a small cavity, it may not even hurt right away. But if left untreated, that cavity will grow larger and larger. It can become decayed to the point that you need a dental crown to restore it. Or it can become infected and require a root canal to repair. Or you could even lose the tooth!
That’s a lot of unneeded pain. It’s also a recipe for higher dental bills. Preventative dentistry procedures and minor restorative procedures are less expensive — and less time consuming — than catching and treating your dental issue before it becomes a major problem. We want to help you even if you suffer from dental phobia or anxiety. Dr. Dine has been helping nervous patients achieve beautiful smiles for over four decades.
Good Vibrations for Pain-Free Dentistry
If you suffer from dental phobia, what is that you fear the most? Many patients aren’t so nervous about the treatment itself but dread the idea of shot or drills. Dr. Dine completely understands this completely. So the kind doctor decided to do something about it to help his patients conquer that fear. We’re now proud to say that we’re one of very few dentist offices in the area to offer DentalVibe.
What is DentalVibe? DentalVibe is a handheld unit that Dr. Dine uses to administer local anesthesia before performing a restorative dentistry procedure. DentalVibe gently vibrates your gum before delivering the numbing agent to your mouth. These vibrations actually trick your brain and block your pain receptors from even noticing the injection.
DentalVibe not only ensures a more comfortable injection, the vibrations also help to spread the anesthesia through your mouth. That means you go numb faster, so your appointment goes faster! DentalVibe also allows us to frequently use less anesthesia than would otherwise be required. That means your mouth won’t be numb for as long following your treatment.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not! We’ve been using this revolutionary technology for a few years at our comfortable and modern office. During this time we’ve found that DentalVibe has around a 98 percent success rate on all of our patients. We can use it on children, teenagers, adults, senior citizens, and everyone in-between to help provide a more comfortable treatment.
