    Is There Such a Thing as a Painless Dentist?

    August 26th, 2010
    When you’re a dentist, you know that many of the people who come to see you are a little high-strung about the possibility of pain. It comes with the job, and to be honest most times there is very little pain involved with coming to see the dentist.
    Here are two words that people don’t normally associate with one another ‘painless’ and ‘dentist’. Could there really be such a thing as a painless dentist?My name is Dr. Eric Hibbs, and I am a well-known dentist in Tx. I know how much people can worry about pain when the time rolls around for a checkup.

    Worry Makes the Fear of Pain Worse

    Many patients I’ve seen at my Dallas office, located at 5600 W. Lovers Lane Suite 216 have expressed the desire to come to the dentist without any possibility of pain. There is a lot of good news for people who fear the pain they associate with going to the dentist. Modern techniques and breakthroughs have allowed dental procedures to be less painful, and in some cases even pain-free. This is news that people who hesitate to see a dentist need to hear. So many people cause themselves pain and problems down the road by avoiding dental care all together. These people need to know about the realities of seeing a painless dentist.

    One of the most exciting techniques dentists use to alleviate pain with some procedures is called hypnodontics. This is a combination of Nitrous Oxide used in conjunction with relaxation techniques that allow a trip to the dentist to be a painless dentist visit.

    If you’ve put off going to the dentist, these new techniques in pain management can be just the thing you’ve been waiting for. Give me a call at 214-DENTIST or better yet click here to make an appointment at my Dallas office.

    What to Expect When Going to a Sedation Dentist

    August 18th, 2010
    As a dentist you learn to deal with the fact that many people get anxious about coming to see you. It’s completely understandable. Most healthcare professionals quickly come to terms with this fact after being in the industry for a while. I’m Dr. Eric Hibbs, and I know that just getting to the dentist is a huge hurdle for many people. Most patients find that once they are in my Dallas office, everything is going to be okay.
    A Sedation Dentist Can Help

    You might have heard of a sedation dentist or sleep dentist. A sedation dentist has received some very special training to help people who get very anxious about seeing a dentist. When patients go to a sedation dentist, they will receive medication to take, prior to their actual examination. This medication will make the person very drowsy and will alleviate all of the stress and fear that they normally feel. This allows the sleep dentist to provide the kind of dental care that the patient needs. It really is a great solution for people who can’t tolerate visiting the dentist for a conventional visit.

    Patients who go to see a sedation dentist should always have transportation to and from the visit because the drugs are taken before the visit and the effects can last for some time after the visit. This is a great breakthrough for people who may not have seen a dentist for many years to get the treatment they deserve. If you have questions about sedation dental practices or would like to set up an appointment please call me at 214-DENTIST, or stop by my office at 5600 W. Lovers Lane Suite 216 Dallas, Tx.

    Looking For a Sleep Dentist?

    August 10th, 2010
    For some people anxiety goes hand-in-hand with a visit to the dentist. For some reason a visit to the dentist can rank up with one of the most stressful things that people go through.
    By now everyone knows just how important it is to take care of your teeth and to visit your dentist at least twice a year. For people who just can’t stand the thought of a trip to a dentist, there is a new term you might want to hear – a sleep dentist, otherwise known as a sedation dentist. This is a dentist who has received special training. This type of dentistry can be especially helpful to people that just can’t bring themselves to sit for a regular dental appointment.

    My name is Dr. Eric Hibbs, I have a dental practice in Dallas, Tx. Having been in this business for a while, I know how much some people fear going to the dentist. A visit to a sleep dentist can make that fear a thing of the past.

    If you plan on going to visit a sleep dentist, you will probably be given a medication to take before the visit. This medication will make you drowsy, so you have to have transportation to and from your visit. While most patients never fall completely asleep during these visits, the medication’s effects allow them to stay calm and free of fear during the trip to the dentist.

    Visiting a sleep dentist like me, Dr. Hibbs, can be great for people who just get too anxious for a conventional visit. Too many people neglect their dental health because of fears that they have. Don’t let that happen to you.
