Millions of people across the country struggle with dental anxiety–fear that their dental care wont be comfortable. Fear that dental care is painful. At Mint Family Dental we understand that, and try to make each patient comfortable and to meet individual needs.
Dental Vibe is a new device that helps takes the pain out of local anesthetic injections and provides a vibration to the area that is to receive the anesthetic. If that is used in combination with a strong topical anesthetic, you will virtually feel no pain.
Needle fears keep many people away from the dentist. Postponing dental procedures because of these fears is common, but ultimately results in worsening problems and other serious oral health concerns.95% of the patients that have experienced the Dental Vibe Injection Comfort System say that it has changed their view on going to the dentist.
How Does Dental Vibe Work?
The Dental Vibe applies a light vibration to the tissues around the injection site while anesthesia injections are administered.
Research has shown that when vibration and injection sensations are occurring simultaneously, the vibration feeling reaches the brain first and essentially blocks the feeling of the injection from being perceived by the brain. Children and adults no longer have to be afraid of the needle.
Dental Vibes are used worldwide, including in Europe, Australia, the Middle East, and every state in the U.S.
At Mint Family Dental, we are constantly updating Patient Comfort amenities.
