It's no secret that many people are afraid of seeing the dentist — even a general and family dentist as compassionate and well-versed in pain-free treatments as Dr. Evola at Forestream Dental in Depew, New York.
According to the National Institutes of Health, "dental phobia" is one of the 10 most common fears overall. Only the fear of snakes, fear of heights and fear of physical pain rank higher among everyday people than fear of going to the dentist. Dental industry experts believe that between 1-in-4 and 1-in-5 Americans (roughly 24 percent) experience this type of anxiety.
Of course, Buffalo-area family dentist Dr. Evola knows that our fear of pain and "dental phobia" go hand-in-hand. That's one of the reasons that Forestream Dental is pleased to offer our patients the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System. This advanced dental and medical technology distributes a buffering, neutral pharmaceutical before the traditional local anesthetic. With "less stinging (and) more numbing," Anutra is a minimally-invasive dentistry product that can make your dental healthcare virtually painless.
When you have questions about how Dr. Evola and the entire family-friendly dentistry staff at Forestream Dental is able to provide pain-free, minimally-invasive care, which is especially well-suited to our younger patients, please contact our Depew offices online or by telephone to schedule your next appointment with our dentist: 716-656-8686. Dr. Evola and the staff at Forestream Dental are proud to serve the communities in and around Buffalo, Lancaster, Orchard Park and Depew, New York.
