Pain free dentistry isn’t some new fangled term used to entice you into the dentist’s chair. In fact, pain free dentistry provided by Dr. Jack Ringer from Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills is the only way to curb your dental anxiety or your dental phobia.
What is Dental Anxiety?
Dental anxiety, although not as intense as dental phobia can cause a person to become anxious the night before a dental appointment or while waiting for the appointment itself.
People who are anxious about visiting the dentist often know that it is unfounded and exaggerated, and can usually overcome the fear with sedation dentistry. However, if that anxiety has turned into a phobia, they may never visit the dentist again.
What is Dental Phobia?
A more severe form of dental anxiety, dental phobia causes a person to avoid the dentist at all costs, even if they are in pain. Unfortunately waiting until the pain, bleeding, and redness has set in is only going to make things worse.
In nearly every case, that root canal could have been avoided had the patient scheduled an appointment with a dentist in Orange County. A small cavity is easy to fill and takes very little time. However, root canal therapy can take two or three dental appointments to complete and may have been unnecessary had the patient gone to the dentist at the onset of pain.
Signs that you may be suffering from Dental Phobia include:
• Severe anxiety the night before the treatment
• Serious stress when thinking about the dentist
• Unable to sleep the night before a dental appointment
• Feeling nerves on your way to the appointment
• Feeling nervous while you wait at the dental practice
• Anxious feeling
• Feeling physically ill when contemplating a dental checkup
• Uneasiness that is quite intense
Although some patients suffer from severe dental phobia and require special treatment during every appointment, most often, pain free dentistry is used during:
• Smile Makeovers
• Complex or lengthy dental treatments
• Dental anxiety
• Severe dental phobia
• Dental Implants
• Complicated cosmetic dentistry procedures
According to Dr. Ringer from Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills, fear is the number one thing that keeps people from scheduling dental appointments and nine times out of ten that fear stems from the needle and the syringe, and that is where pain free dentistry comes in.
The minute someone with mild or severe dental anxiety sees the needle, the fear sets in and becomes real. However, thanks to modern dental technology from Dr. Ringer, pain free dentistry is possible with STA. Known as Single Tooth Anesthesia; the small needle administers a small amount of anesthetic into your gums in a single shot. With STA, you will not feel pressure that is what causes the pain in the first place.
