Dentist Uses Technology To Improve Patient Comfort, Reduce Anxiety
Comfort in the dental chair has become a primary concern for more patients, and now a local dentist has made it his top priority. Dr. Robert Rabiel Amirian is making the longtime dreaded dental appointment obsolete, evolving his practice by utilizing his technology and his advanced techniques.
Going to the dentist can be a very scary experience for most, forcing many to avoid treating their oral health. Ask yourself “Am I terrified of dentists and avoid them at all costs?” If you answered yes, you are not alone. This may indicate that you suffer from dental phobia.
Now a patient’s fear of the unknown is eliminated with conscious sedation and newer technology. Dr. Amirian has long expressed his concern with Brooklyn’s high dental anxiety population, treating patients who have neglected their oral health due to fear. “Dentistry does not have to be painful or scary anymore,” he says. Dr. Amirian believes patients should no longer feel as though they have no control over the dentist’s next move.
Advancements in dentistry, such as a computer-controlled local dental anesthetic system, allows Dr. Amirian to precisely control the rate of delivery of a local anesthetic, allowing the injection to be nearly painless.
Nitrous oxide—also known as laughing gas, oral medications taken before dental procedures, and particular relaxation aromas are all options offered to reduce anxiety or even eliminate it for many.
“Our focus is to deliver the highest possible level of care, with compassion and understanding, and allow patients to leave with a positive experience,” he said.
