Michigan Periodontist Uses New Device to Help Ease Fear of Dentist

Fear of the dentist is a very common thing. Many people neglect their oral health because they are too scared to visit the dentist’s office. The Michigan periodontists at Joseph R. Nemeth DDS & Associates practice pain-free dentistry, which virtually takes away the fear of having your teeth checked out.

A new device called Dental Vibe has hit the market and is now available at Dr. Nemeth’s office. It is about the size of a toothbrush but functions very differently. When the device is applied to the patient’s mouth, it creates vibrations which eliminate the sensation of pain when an injection is being delivered.

Dental Vibe helps patients with their fear of needles and pain at the dentist. Because the pain associated with injections is gone, the fear often is too! This way, patients can focus more on preventing dental problems and focus less on the pain/fear of an injection!

Another way Detroit periodontists are helping to make your trip to the dentist a little easier is with conscious sedation dentistry. This allows dentists to perform the work you need while you relax. Dental sedation includes nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and intravenous sedation. Another benefit to dental sedation is that the doctors can accomplish in one visit what might have otherwise taken several appointments! This means less pain AND less time spent in the dental chair!

Taking care of your oral health is very important and is linked with your total body wellness. For optimal oral health, make sure you brush and floss your teeth daily, visit the dentist twice a year, and eat a balanced, nutritious diet.
