If you are one of the many people who have a fear of visiting the dentist, then we have solutions to help make you feel at ease in our practice. Our dentist has experience treating patients who are dental phobic, and utilises the latest technology to ensure patients feel comfortable. Take a look at some of the latest pain free technology our practice can offer.
‘The Wand’- Pain Free Injections
The Wand is a computer controlled, painless, anaesthetic injection system developed to replace the traditional syringe in dentistry. The Wand is so effective that you might not even know you’ve had an injection. With this improved technology the dentist is able to choose to numb just one tooth. There will be no numbness of the tongue, cheek, or lip, allowing you to return to your normal routine quickly.
The Wand uses a small hand piece that looks like a pen, and supplies anaesthetic in a slow comfortable manner. It works at a low pressure, and a slow rate that gives an improved anaesthesia. This results in a more pleasant experience for patients. If you have a phobia of the pain caused by medical syringes this treatment allows you to attend the dentist without the anxiety.
AquaCare – Contactless Dentistry
AquaCare uses breakthrough technology to deliver a comfortable, quick cleaning procedure by using a fine stream of fluid combined with a tiny volume of powder directed at the teeth to be treated. Decay is then comfortably removed with minimal sensation, leaving healthy tooth material undisturbed. Typically a dental hygienist will scrape away plaque and tartar from your teeth, which some patients find uncomfortable. Unlike a conventional dental drill, hand instruments and ultrasonic devices, the AquaCare procedure makes no contact with your tooth and there is no distressing vibration, heat or smell.
Benex Control – Gentle Tooth Extraction
The Benex Extractor is an innovative system that allows gentle, secure and easy extraction of the root of a tooth. While use of conventional instruments can sometimes damage the tissues surrounding the extracted tooth, the Benex Extractor conserves them. This is particularly useful for patients who wish to have an implant to replace the lost tooth. The Benex Extractor functions like a corkscrew to gently pull the root of the tooth upwards in small steady motions. This makes for a much more comfortable patient experience, as there are no sudden ‘tugging’ movements and less pain. Click here to see a video of how the Benex Extractor system works.
