There are options for people afraid of dental pain
Updated: 12/17/2012 12:12:10 PM

There are options for people afraid of dental pain Some people may avoid the dentist because they are afraid it will be painful. However, thanks to modern advancements in technology, a trip to the dentist does not have to be uncomfortable anymore. This is important, considering if people are skipping their bi-annual dental cleanings, they may be setting themselves up for serious dental problems in the future. This is why people should look into pain-free dentistry options.

For example, some dentists are using dental lasers that can target and treat dental issues with far less pain and discomfort than a traditional dental device. Not only that, it also reduces the risk for needing a local anesthetic or developing an infection.

Cosmetic dentist Marina Rubinshtein, D.D.S., recently explained in a statement that a dentist who uses lasers may be a good choice during the holidays.

"During the holidays, having a laser-assisted dental option gives patients a big advantage," said Rubinshtein. "People are opting for this minimally invasive technology because they don't have time for a lengthy recovery. They have kids to shop for, family to visit and colleagues to socialize with during holiday parties."

WebMD recommends that if people are extremely anxious, they ask their doctor about sedation dentistry options, in which they can be put to sleep for the procedure.
