Painless Dentistry Techniques to Ease Your Anxiety
Let’s face it. Not many people are truly excited about visiting the dentist. However, some patients experience such high levels of dental anxiety that their oral health suffers because of it. At Artistic Expressions Dentistry in Doylestown, PA, Dr. Bruce Wilderman offers painless dentistry techniques to help ease the anxieties of our patients. With modern advances in medicine, there is truly no reason to suffer through an appointment. Using minimally invasive techniques, innovative technology, and sedation options, you really can have a comfortable and relaxing dental experience.
Defining Painless Dentistry
At our practice, we believe your experience begins the second you walk through our door. We combine a soothing atmosphere with lush amenities and minimally invasive therapies to create a high-quality dental experience from start to finish.
The Wand®: Anesthetic without the Pinch
Local anesthesia is necessary for the majority of dental treatments. While it is certainly effective for keeping the treatment site numb during your procedure, traditional methods still cause a pinch of discomfort when the anesthesia is administered. Did you know that twinge of pain actually comes from the rapid administration of medication rather than the needle itself? The Wand is a specialized delivery system that administers anesthesia a little bit at a time for a much more comfortable experience.
Minimally Invasive Dental Lasers
Lasers in dentistry may sound like something from the future, but they are commonly used, trusted tools. In fact, they make several procedures much easier for the patient due to their minimally invasive nature. There are different types of lasers depending on the treatment being performed. For example, a soft tissue diode laser can reshape and contour the gum line for a more balanced, symmetrical appearance. We also use a specialized laser for removing tooth decay and preparing teeth for restorations. This eliminates the need for loud drilling and enhances your comfort.
Do you relax with a blanket and pillow on the couch at home? Why should the dental office be any different? When you come to our practice, we strive to make the amenities of home available during your entire visit.
