Dental phobias are very common despite advancements in dental technology that provide numerous procedures with much less discomfort than in previous years. When you are afraid of visiting the dentist, the health of your entire body can suffer. In fact, dental health is conclusively linked to several systemic problems including heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, and respiratory problems.
But for many people, even this is not enough to overcome the fear and anxiety that can come from a routine visit to the dentist.
Treating Dental Phobias
At Aesthetic Dental Studio, we are deeply concerned with the safety and comfort of all of our patients. To assist people with dental phobias, we have implemented the best practices recommended by the Alberta Dental Association and College. While this can reduce discomfort for patients who have a general fear of dental procedures, it still may not address the anxiety that those who suffer from a fear of needles can face.
For patients who are afraid of needles, our dentist offer The Wand, a computer controlled needle-free anesthesia injection system. The Wand allows our dentists to control the discomfort associated with some dental procedures. The Wand is a computer controlled anesthetic delivery device that measures your tissue resistance to deliver the most comfortable injection possible. It is shaped like a thin plastic pen and gives the dentist more accuracy, thus insuring that your tooth is properly numbed. Many patients claim that they can hardly feel it at all. By eliminating needles from your procedure, we can help you address your dental phobias and comfortably provide you with the treatment you need.
We believe that everyone deserves a healthy, vibrant smile. Choosing the right dentist can help you feel comfortable, confident, and relaxed during dental visits. Patients who have traditionally been afraid of the dentist can take comfort in our relaxing, professional facilities. We will work closely with you to help ensure you remain comfortable and anxiety free during your entire dental visit.
