When we’re experiencing tooth pain and we know in the immediate future we’re going to have to get it checked out, the first thing most of us are likely to think of are the horror stories…
Big needles or any talk about drills are overblown in the patients mind and sound scary, but the truth is, you’re likely to experience more pain if you avoid going. In fact, we’re there to take that pain away!
But imagine a world where you didn’t have to fear going to the dentist… that scientists are on the cusp of a break-through technology that could eliminate that primordial feeling of dread…
I was doing a little reading the other day and happened across this on the web.
How exciting, eh?
The procedure ‘supercharges’ remineralisation, a natural process that strengthens tooth enamel, the tooth’s protective coating. Better yet, the ‘device speeds up this process to the same amount of time it takes to have a filling.’ It’s painless, too.
With around ’98 per cent of people affected by tooth decay at some point in their lives’, it would be a cost-effective way to visit your dentist, and could save you a world of future torment.
It’s still early days, with it being in the prototype stage, but imagine if one day, worldwide, we could protect your teeth and the teeth of your children with such a device. Maybe then, taking a trip to the dentist would seem like an attractive proposition.
However, until then, if you do have any concerns, or if it’s been a while since your last assessment, why not get in touch for an appointment. It could be saving you a lot of hassle and money.
If you do have any concerns, call us on 020 8088 2079. We’ll be happy to help.
