Enjoy comfortable dental visits with local anesthesia
If you are not a fan of needles, you are not alone. Millions of Americans deal with the anxiety of receiving a shot, whether it’s an anesthetic shot, a needle for an IV, or a simple flu vaccination. Fortunately, with today’s amazing technology, Dr. Colleen Williamson of Grand Dental Arts in Toms River, New Jersey, can make it practically impossible to feel the insertion of the needle to administer anesthesia. We offer a comfortable alternative with the DentalVibe device.
How does the DentalVibe dental anesthesia injection work?
The DentalVibe is a small, handheld device that emits vibrations. When the vibrating head of the DentalVibe is placed on the gum tissue, the vibration blocks the nerve signals that would typically send pain signals to the brain. This means that you barely feel the needle as it enters the gum tissue!
What are some other benefits of using the DentalVibe?
- Comfortable dental anesthesia injections
- Increased blood flow to the injection site
- Reduced swelling and bruising
- Reduced anxiety about dental procedures requiring anesthesia
- More positive experience in the dental chair
What can I do if I have a fear of the dentist?
Many patients with dental anxiety may schedule their necessary cleanings and evaluations but cancel and reschedule due to fears of being in the dental chair and experiencing discomfort. With the DentalVibe device, many of our patients love that they can barely tell that the injection was performed due to the vibration created with this device. If you have dental anxiety, speak to Dr. Williamson to discuss what is happening during your treatment as it occurs so there are no surprises throughout the process. Many patients have mentioned that if the DentalVibe tool existed and was available when they were younger, they never would have developed dental fear, anxiety, or extreme dental phobia!
