Ways To Combat Dental Fear and Anxiety

When patients visit AH Smiles, they can expect personalized, experience dental care. During your consultation, Dr. Engelberg will explain all aspects of your treatment to ensure you are well informed and comfortable. Depending on your unique needs, we may provide one or more solutions to help create a pain-free, comfortable, and safe experience in our Arlington Heights dental office.

There are three critical components to a pain-free experience at AH Smiles:

  • Topical Anesthetic Gel: At the beginning of the numbing process, a smooth topical anesthetic gel is applied to the affected area and gently massaged into the tissue.
  • DentalVibe®:  DentalVibe® emits a light vibration that blocks pain receptors. When the vibration and injection are administered at the same time, the vibration blocks the feeling of injection before it reaches the brain. DentalVibe is a practical solution for patients who have a fear of needles.
  • The Wand® & STA® & CompuDent®: The Wand® is a computerized assisted anesthetic system that creates a steady, consistent drip of anesthetic for a comfortable, pain-free dental experience.

At AH Smiles, we offer a full range of sedation dentistry options to help patients remain comfortable throughout their treatment. Sedation dentistry can also allow patients to receive more than one procedure during one visit to our dental office.

At AH Smiles we are committed to creating a safe, open space for our patients to receive the dental care they need. If you suffer from dental fear or anxiety, please let us know before or during your appointment.
