Patient comfort is very important when it comes to all types of dental procedures. Many dental offices focus solely on oral health and procedures, but what if the patient is afraid to visit the clinic in the first place due to phobias or anxiety? Your Port St Lucie Dentist R. Anthony Matheny knows that patient comfort is our number one priority. We aim to build a relationship of trust where patients feel comfortable with the staff, facilities, and the dental procedures, to the point that they are willing and happy to return again and again.
DentalVibe is a unique tool whose sole purpose is to decrease the amount of pain associated with the anesthetic injection that takes place prior to the actual dental procedure/operation. The way it works is like this: the tool is inserted into the patient’s oral edifice, and applied to the area in which the anesthetic will be injected. It begins to vibrate and at an intense rate. What happens is next is that the vibration stimulates the nerve system in the gums, which sends discomfort/pain signals to the brain and overall decreases the amount of pain felt by the injection. The vibration also serves to loosen the gums in preparation for the anesthetic, so that it can spread over a wider area and hence increases the effectiveness.
Many patients who have undergone cosmetic or general dental enhancement can attest to the power of DentalVibe. The vibrations emitted by the device cause a pleasant rippling effect on the inner gums, silencing the pain nerves to the point that the patient cannot even feel when the injection actually occurred. This is an amazing new piece of technology! With the DentalVibe Comfort Injection System now being utilized at the St. Lucie center, patient comfort has increased one hundred fold.
