Painless Injections Make Dentistry More Comfortable
By: Dr. Roya Mirkhan
Most people dread going to the dentist, sometimes leading to years of elapsed time between appointments. However, regular visits to the dentist are important to the overall health of your teeth and gums, and Dr. Mirkhan’s focus on pain-free dentistry can help you overcome your doubts about setting your next appointment.
Dr. Mirkhan uses DentalVibe, the latest in painless injection technology. This is a cordless, handheld device that is designed to reduce the pain and discomfort that most people experience when receiving a dental injection. It works with any syringe to allow a dentist to administer an anesthetic using a 3-in-1 system that illuminates (lights up the area the dentist needs to inject), oscillates (delivers a unique, soothing pulsed vibration to block pain and discomfort) and retracts (retracts the lip/check to make it easier to inject virtually anywhere in the mouth).
How does it work? DentalVibe sends intermittent micro-oscillations (backward and forward movements) to the brain’s neurological pain sensors, effectively closing the pain gate and blocking the pain of the injection. It does not vibrate the actual needle, which would lead to tissue damage, but rather delivers vibrations to the surrounding mucosa (mucous membrane) in a synchronized, changing pattern that enables it to work effectively to block pain.
No matter the specific treatment you need, if you visit Dr. Roya Mirkhan, you do not have to worry about painful injections. In addition to her compassionate care and attention to client safety and results, Dr. Mirkhan utilizes the latest technology for pain-free injections.
