Did you know that over 40 million Americans refuse to go to the dentist on a yearly basis because of their fear of needles or getting other work done? Dental anxiety and fear is certainly a real thing and puts more than the mouths of all of these people at risk. Studies are coming out constantly that correlate poor oral health with other whole-body-health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, pancreatic cancer, pregnancy complications, asthma and more. By taking care of your teeth with twice-yearly visits to Dr. Flynn-Nyktas, you could be saving your own life.
Dr. Flynn-Nyktas takes the needle pain out of dentistry with DentalVibe.
DentalVibe works by providing a gentle vibration at the site of the dental injection. This vibration works in overloading the nerve that sends pain signals to the brain, so when the injection comes, you can't register the pain or discomfort. The sound of the vibration of the device also helps create a layer of distraction, and the vibration even helps evenly disperse anesthesia once injected so that it can work faster than ever before.
Dr. Flynn-Nyktas has treated many patients with DentalVibe and they are often very unaware of when the injection occurs. This tool is especially helpful when it comes to calming children about their dental fears. In fact, many patients of ours have said that if this tool was available when they first started visiting the dentist- they would have no fear at all today.
