Many people don't like going to the dentist because they find certain dental care procedures uncomfortable or even painful.
People who feel anxiety before going to the dentist might be interested to know that Milestone Scientific (MS), a company that works with computer-controlled injection technologies, has developed a system that could allow dentists to painlessly deliver local anesthetic.
Syringes are a very common fear and because many dental care procedures require injections, some patients feel anxious in the days before their dentist appointment. The MS system is one example of how the dental care industry is trying to make it easier to maintain good dental hygiene.
Another positive feature of the system is that it allows for single tooth anesthesia, which means only that part of the patient's mouth is affected by the injection. Dental care professionals say collateral numbing is when much of the patient's mouth is needlessly influenced by the anesthetic.
Though visiting the dentist may sometimes involve discomfort, maintaining good dental hygiene is important because having an unhealthy mouth can lead to other medical worries like diabetes, according to the American Dental Association.
