Numb Teeth Without Needles - Want to Know More?


Posted on 12/30/2016 by Dr. Leite
A woman suffering from dental anxiety about needles.
For many people, the fear of needles stops them from going to the dentist. They worry that the needle is going to hurt, even though it is full of anesthetic to numb your mouth. Instead of letting the fear of needles stop you from getting the important dental care you need, consider alternatives.

There are different options for people who fear looking at needles, as well as options for those who cannot handle even the slightest needle to numb the mouth. Here are a couple options you may want to find out more about.

The Wand Helps Those Who Cannot See a Needle


There is a new numbing tool for dentists called the wand. Not many dentists have it yet, but it is quickly growing in popularity. It looks like a small pen, and it is placed in your mouth and uses micro needles to help numb the specific tooth or small area that is going to be worked on. It feels as though the dentist is simply drawing on the gums around the tooth, and before you know it, the tooth is numb.

TENS Units Help Those Who Cannot Handle Any Needle


The same type of TENS units that are used to control tight muscles in other parts of the body can also be used to help numb an area of the mouth prior to any procedure being done. You are given a unit to hold that allows you to adjust the unit up and down to help it keep you more or less numb.

If you want to be able to find out what other options you have for keeping your mouth numb without extra needles, contact our office. They have more options for helping you get numb than you may know about, so see what specific options your dentist offers today!
