Hi, this is Dr. Antolak from thegentledentist.com in Shelby Township, Michigan. Our phone number, in case you want to reach us, is (586) 247-3500. You’re probably wondering what I’m doing holding up this. Well, this is a dental instrument, as we all know what it is and a dental syringe.  We basically can put anesthetic, which is a liquid material, inside of here. And of course, there’s a small little needle that goes into the soft tissue. I know this makes people like really freak out, looking in I understand, but the reality is this is what we need to do to to numb you up.

Since we always strive in our office for the best and most excellent type of treatment and care, I’d just like to describe a few changes that we’re doing at our office.  1 it is not only do we use a topical anesthetic and leave it on the gum tissue for a couple of minutes, which totally numbs the gums up so you don’t feel any pain at all with.

The small needle that we showed you. But, also we have this device. What this is, it is called a Vibraject and what it does is it’s a little device that we have it clipped, actually clips right on the anesthetic needle itself. And what it does is, is it vibrates.  That’s kind of odd isn’t it?  It vibrates. What does the vibration do? The vibration will be distracting because it’s vibrating so quickly that it’s called the Gateway Theory to Pain.

Then it’s vibrating so much that when it’s doing that you don’t feel the anesthetic that’s going in because your body is feeling the vibration. And so this is just, do it in the same way we inject slowly so that there will be no blood but I plan to try this on a patient they loved it because they don’t feel a thing when we do it and so this is just a battery operated device that we can use to make your experiences here more comfortable and really your, your anesthetic that you know.

Anyway, if you want to try this or anything new in our office to basically as a dentist and part of what we’re doing here, is just a sample of the type of care that we do and pay attention to the details for our patients and our, if you’d like to do that our phone number is 586-247-3500, visit our website at thegentledentist.com.

Thank You.
