A majority of us would rather undergo any form of torture than go to a dentist. There is some great news for the ones who are silently enduring their dental pains. Read on as we reveal how to get rid of your teething troubles and that too painlessly!
1. NO MORE INJECTIONS
If the fear of a needle is what’s keeping you away from the dental office then think again as we can now numb you with as little as just a paste,spray or solution that doesn’t require an injection for its delivery. This revolutionary new technology takes away the prick of the needle and the pressure of the liquid expanding your lips and gums, instead, the solution enters by a digitally controlled dispenser going in drop by drop making it virtually undetectable.
2. NO MORE DRILLING
The sound of the drill can be one of the most known triggers for creating fear and anxiety in the patient’s mind. When coupled with its vibrations,heat and pressure the experience it creates oscillates from unpleasant to downright unbearable.If the drill were replaced by a beam of light that can clean up decay, even the most reluctant people would open up to the experience. Once patients experience the difference they not only get the most urgent and necessary treatments done but also opt for preventive treatments.
3. BLADE FREE SURGERIES
If you had to undergo a dental surgery earlier you may have had to worry about blood loss, pain, swelling, stitches not to mention the countless gory images that come to mind -but fortunately not anymore !A surgery can be completely pain-free with little or no bleeding,immediate recovery,no stitches and no swellings having you back at work or play almost instantly.
4. QUICK & EASY ROOT CANALS
Root canal treatment as a procedure is probably more dreaded than even extraction or removal of a tooth. The pain and fear associated with this treatment are due to the primitive way that it used to be done in earlier.Automated technologies make root canals completely painless, precise, quick and smooth in as little as just one session.
5. RELAXING MEDICATION
If these reasons do not sound convincing enough then pain relieving and controlling drugs before or during your appointment may be the solution for you. Great strides have been made in the field of pharmacology with medication that can block or control pain centers in the brain. We now choose from a variety of medication ranging from oral drugs to breathing gases through a mask, that can relieve your anxiety during the procedure to a point that you no longer perceive or detect pain.
The only thing left to fear now remains a nagging toothache in the back of your mouth that you have been ignoring. As hard as it may seem to believe, truth is, that with the best technology, great ambiance, and a host of distraction techniques – a dental appointment may actually turn out to be pleasant and save you a world of pain in the future!
