Comfortable dental care at the push of a button

Comfortable dental care at the push of a button People who put off making an appointment for a dental care procedure because they are afraid it might involve discomfort or pain should know that new technology could make the experience less intimidating.

Cavities can become a serious problem if they go untreated for too long. But the dentist's drill makes many people feel anxious, which can transform a simple dental care procedure into an ordeal. The Dental Button might help relax nervous patients, however.

The Dental Button is a hand-held device that allows patients to stop their dentists' drill whenever there is too much discomfort, according to NBC.

"You have no control, you have people leaning over you," said Joann Bay-Dee, a patient in Philadelphia, to the new source. "It's almost primal. Your throat is exposed."

Bay-Dee's description helps explain why the Dental Button might become a popular piece of technology. Tooth decay is often caused by sugary foods and drinks that create bacteria in the mouth that attacks tooth enamel, according to the American Dental Association. Cavities can be avoided by brushing twice a day and flossing regularly.
