Studies on dental phobia and pain have shown that past painful dental experiences result in even more discomfort during subsequent dental visits.
Giving anesthesia is usually one of the first parts of the treatment process, and a pain-free injection relaxes patients, create a positive and painless experience.
Slow injections can be regulated more precisely by a computer-controlled instrument than by hand with a conventional syringe.
A large part of dental anxiety is the anticipation of pain from the procedure, and this perception creates a psychological “vicious cycle." Patients have inaccurate expectations of pain and anxiety and overestimate their predicted pain during future procedures.
Giving pain-free anesthesia through computer-controlled injection can surprise and relax patients from the beginning. This technology can become part of your “practice brand,” creating a positive and painless experience, increasing patient loyalty and referrals.
