Many people fear having dental procedures performed and one of the main reasons for this fear is the dentist needle often used to provide local anesthesia. Even though using this an aesthetic is to help reduce the pain of a procedure, the fear of the needle used to introduce the anesthetic to the area often keeps patients from having the treatments they need at the dentist.
However, for those who are afraid of needles, some new developments are offering another option that allows dentists to administer the local anesthetic without a needle – a needleless injection.
Instead of having to use a dentist needle to administer the aesthesia, it can be administered by needleless injection. Instead of using a needle, a burst of high pressure is used quickly to introduce the area. It takes place quickly and there is little discomfort. Instead of dealing with the pain of a needle, just anesthetic to a small sting is all that most patients feel with these new needless delivery systems. For those that fear the discomfort that comes with a needle, needless injectors provide a much better choice.
A needleless injection can be used instead of a dentist needle to administer the anesthesia needed for a variety of different dental procedures.
It can be used for cavity preparation, bridge and crown preparation and tooth extractions. If you are afraid of needles and you’ve been putting off your dental work, you should contact your dentist to see if they offer these new injections that don’t require a needle to administer anesthesia for the treatment.
You may be able to have the procedures done that you have been putting off for so long.
Of course, not only do these needless injectors offer more comfort for patients than a dentist needle, but they are also much safer for professionals using them as well.
When needles are used, there is always the risk of accidentally getting stuck with the needle or accidentally reusing it. When this happens, infection and serious illnesses can be spread.
Using needless systems takes away this risk and provides patients and dental professionals with better safety in the office.
When the dentist needle is replaced with a needleless injection, it can offer the benefit of saved time and effort. It also can eliminate problems with unnecessary needle apprehension and discomfort in patients.
With more companies offering this new technology, it’s becoming more commonly used, offering excellent benefits to patients who need dental work but fear needles.
