The DentalVibe is an innovative tool that reduces the overall pain of dental injections by overloading the nerve that sends the pain signal to your brain. The vibration made by the devices reaches the receptors in your brain before pain signals can, effectively blocking much of the perception of pain in patients. The vibrations also aid in dispersing the anesthetic more efficiently so it works faster.
This device is a technological advancement in dentistry that has the potential to ease anxiety and dental fear by dramatically reducing the pain. Some individuals report feeling no pain at all. Please be sure to ask your dentist if the DentalVibe may be of help to you, and whether or not your dentist has access to this new technology, especially if you’re one of the 40 million Americans who avoid the dentist due to fear.
