Technology to the rescue

A lot of people are afraid of going to the dentist. However, technology has advanced significantly over the last few years, and dental visits can really be made quite comfortable.

To begin with, very strong anesthetic gels exist - these help reduce discomfort associated with a shot.

Early detection can result in shorter and less painful visits. Dentists have a number of things at their disposal to help with early detection. Cavities that're very small can be fixed simply with an air-abrasion unit - requiring no shot and no drill.

Flat-screen TVs and other spa amenities also help.
