The thought of going to the dentist is terrifying for many people, many don’t like needles, simply plunging into their gums or a drill pulverizing their enamel. But now there’s a new tool to get your mind off all of that child threes. Irene O’Connor shows us how it works.

For Robert. It’s simple.

I don’t like pain at all. Don’t like discomfort of any kind.

He’s like a lot of people who have to go to the dentist. But when he came to Dr. Richard Lechner in New Britain, he was pleasantly surprised.

It’s a game-changer. It truly is a game-changer.

Talking about the DentalVibe . It’s this device that looks like an electric toothbrush, but it’s actually used to vibrate the gums while a patient is getting an injection of Novocaine. It’s supposed to totally distract them from the pain of the needle.

So the only sensation the patient feels is the vibration. They don’t register the needle at all.

Before this dentists would usually shake the gums a bit or apply a topical anesthetic called benzocaine,

Wipe it on the, on the gums here. And it soaks in maybe a millimeter or two. The thing is the needle goes in a lot further than that.

There’s no extra charge for DentalVibe . And Dr. Lechner says the patient is focused on the vibration instead of the pain

It vibrates and pulses. So it overloads your nerve that goes to your brain. So you do not register the pain or discomfort.

Robert is a brand new patient here. He’s got to get a small filling on his front tooth. First, Dr. Lechner in his assistant use the DentalVibe and then the needle to inject the Novacane. So what’s the verdict?

So I was quite sensitive to waiting for the prick of the needle. Didn’t feel it at all.

Robert says he wishes someone would have invented the DentalVibe sooner, but he’s really happy it’s here now. I’m just glad that they did it in my lifetime.
