  • 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. Learn more about how computer-controlled injection works.
