The thought of needles penetrating your body can evoke fear and anxiety. In fact, millions of Americans miss dental appointments because of the fear of injections. When you skip dental appointments, you are more than putting your dental health at risk. Untreated dental problems can put your overall body at risk.
At Grand Dental Arts in Toms River, New Jersey, we don’t want you to miss out on the dental care you deserve because of dental anxiety. Dr. Colleen Williamson and her team useDentalVibe® as an alternative approach to traditional injections. This method is quick and comfortable, making the fear of needles a thing of the past.
How DentalVibe® works
DentalVibe® dentistry uses a hand-held tool (that looks like a toothbrush) to administer anesthesia. Instead of a traditional needle, this method delivers a gentle vibration at the injection site. The vibrations “overload” the nerve that sends pain signals to the brain, so you don’t register any pain during injection.
Furthermore, the vibration sound creates a distraction and also helps distribute the anesthesia for quicker effects. When using DentalVibe®, patients don’t even realize when the injection occurs. The process is quick and painless, allowing comfortable treatment before and during the procedure.
Benefits of DentalVibe®: Changing how you view dentistry
DentalVibe® is a versatile tool that can benefit patients of all ages. Countless individuals who have experienced DentalVibe® have undergone a transformative shift in their perception of dentistry. In fact, some believe that if they had been introduced to DentalVibe® at a tender age, they might have never developed dental anxiety or fear.
