Visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience for some people. In many instances, the fear of having teeth repaired can be enough for patients to put off making their much-needed dental appointment. Research has shown the discerning dentist just what it is about the dental practice that puts patients off. As we have learned, the dental drill is one aspect of care that most patients would like to avoid.
Dental drills have been a necessity in dentistry for many decades. Today, we have an alternative that benefits our patients greatly. If you live in the 44094 area and want to enjoy improved dental experiences, schedule a visit with Dr. Stern, gentle Willoughby Hills dentist.
How can teeth be treated without a drill?
In the basic standard of care, damaged tooth material is drilled away with a noisy, vibrating instrument. Dr. Stern prefers to treat his patients with the most conservative, comfortable methods. Rather than removing tooth material with a drill, he uses the NO DRILLING FILLINGS™ technique for restorative care.
Before choosing this method of tooth repair, Dr. Stern investigated a number of alternatives to the dental drill. NO DRILLING FILLINGS™ is a method that Dr. Stern developed and trademarked for the Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills practice, allowing patients to feel better about cavity repair. With this method, there is no need for numbing medication or stress.
How NO DRILLING FILLINGS™ works
The drill-less repair system used in our office removes damaged tooth material by directing a gentle stream of air and sand to the area. This technique is similar to sandblasting. In addition to treating the tooth in a virtually painless manner, this method is highly efficient, removing damaged tooth material with precision. The significance of this is that more natural tooth structure is preserved.
Fear does not have to go hand in hand with dental care. Dr. Stern and his experienced staff are dedicated to providing comfortable care that achieves the desired result. Schedule your dental check-up by calling (440) 210-0999.
