Successful Smiles Podcast: New Dental Technologies Eliminate Pain and Fear

Dr. Helaine Smith's Successful Smiles healthcast #4 | download

Did you know over 100 million North Americans are afraid to visit the dentist due to fear and anxiety? If you're one of these people, this podcast is for you.

In this episode of Successful Smiles, I cover the reasons why people are afraid to visit the dentist and how new techniques, such as sedation dentistry, and new technologies, such as one-visit crowns and tooth bonding materials, have made many dental procedures virtually pain-free.
