It makes sense that so many people avoid pain. After all, pain hurts. You may tell yourself no pain, no gain, but that’s not really true. You don’t have to endure pain to enjoy the benefits of a healthy life, but you also shouldn’t put off things that are important to avoid pain.
At Andrew Dine, DDS we know there are likely people in Fairfield, OH who need to come into our office, but don’t because they want to avoid pain. Not only is this unhealthy, it is completely unnecessary. Our office uses the latest in dental technology and techniques to ensure that when you visit us, you will experience quality painless dentistry.
Bad Things Come to Those Who Wait
Although patience certainly is a virtue, regular dental exams are not something you want to put off. Neglecting regular trips to the dentist can lead to a host of problems down the road, problems that could have easily been avoided.
If left untreated, a simple case of gum inflammation, or gingivitis, can develop into full blown gum disease, which can cause pockets of infection to form and for your gums to recede. This can expose the roots of your teeth, and make them more vulnerable to tooth decay.
Tooth decay is another problem that, if caught early, is easily treated, but if left alone, it can lead to serious health issues. Tooth decay left unchecked can cause infection in your teeth. the infection can not only severely damage your tooth, it can spread throughout your body and cause serious illness.
Even cosmetic dentistry should not be put off. Stained or chipped teeth may not be a great risk to your health, but they do affect the quality of your life. People who do not like the way their teeth look are less likely to smile, and people who smile less tend to have more difficulty with interpersonal communication, both socially and professionally.
So, the more time you go without a cosmetic procedure, like whitening or veneers, the less time you could be enjoying your life with a confident smile! That is why its important not to let the fear of pain hold you back from cosmetic procedure. Life is short. Don’t waste any of it being unhappy with your smile.
What Are You Afraid Of?
Most people are aware that modern dentistry has come a long way when it comes to pain management. In fact, with anesthetic to numb the mouth and nitrous oxide to calm the nerves, most patients will experience little to know pain. So what is there to be afraid of?
What about the needle?
That’s right. To get the anesthetic you need a poke with a needle. And that hurts. Doesn’t it?
Many people are more afraid of the needle than the actual dental procedure. In fact, some studies estimate that as much as 10% of adults have an irrational fear of needles. But the pain of the needle is no longer something to fear.
The DentalVibe Solution
At Andrew Dine DDS, we have the technology to administer anesthetic in a pain free manner. DentalVibe uses the power of vibration to desensitize your gums from the prick of the numbing needle. The vibrations provided by DentalVibe flood the nerves in your gums with a pulsating sensation that overwhelms the pain receptors. It literally blocks out the pain of the injection.
Also, the vibrations allow the anesthetic to spread more evenly and gently throughout the gum. This makes the anesthetic more effective, so that you actually need less of it.
DentalVibe is safe and quick. And, most importantly, pain free. So, fear no longer. The pain of anesthetic delivery is a thing of the past!
