What comes to mind when you think about a visit to the dentist? A smiling professional with a comfy chair and plenty of ways to help protect your precious teeth or scary looking equipment, strange sounds and terrifying needles? If your thoughts veer towards the latter then we may just have a solution to help make your dental experience a lot more bearable.
Many people feel anxious when they visit the dentist, but for some this mild anxiety can develop into teeth chattering terror. This can lead to people not getting the vital treatment they need to protect and preserve their pearly whites. Also some people have a needle phobia and just can’t stand the idea of having an injection, which means receiving essential treatment is out of the question.
However, we can offer an alternative to the old school syringe with an innovative computerised system called the Dental Wand. This device really is magic as it delivers a slow, steady flow of numbing anaesthetic for a gentler dental experience. Also, it is much less off putting than a spiky syringe as it looks more like an innocent pen.
The reason the wand offers less painful pain relief is because the flow of anaesthetic is delivered at a constant pressure. It also boasts quicker numbing power and subsequent sensation recovery. All this means the wand not only appeals to those with needle phobias but also to children and busy professionals as the pain relief is much more localised and they can quickly get on with their lives.
It’s important to see your dentist regularly because taking a rain check on check-ups can be seriously damaging to your dental health. Also the longer you leave any problems, the worse they could get and that may mean much more involved and lengthy treatment.
Along with our friendly approach and welcoming setting, the dental wand is just one more way we can ward off dental anxiety and help you have a more comfortable time in the chair.
