Painless injection-DentalVibe

December 4th, 2022

We, Braddock Family Dental, would like to introduce DentalVibe, a painless injection device.  Are you or your children afraid of dental needle??  Don't worry, you are not the only one.  Millions fear the dentist because of painful injections.  Because of the fear, many are not getting the dental care they need.  DentalVibe alleviates the anxiety of oral injections by massaging the nerves and tissue around the injection site for better dental experiences.

How does it work?

DentalVibe uses vibration to help block pain signals from the brain.  It applies a light vibration to the tissues around the injection site while anesthesia injections are administered.  Research has shown that when vibration and injection sensation are occuring simultanesously, the vibration feeling reaches the brain first and essentially blocks the feeling of the injection from being perceived by the brain.  Children and adults no longer have to be afraid of the needle!

Does it cost extra?

No, it does not cost anything.  We would absorb the cost of parts, if it helps our patients to receive the dental care they need.

Please give DentalVibe a try and you will no longer fear dentistry!!

Thanksgiving Trivia

November 24th, 2021

At Braddock Family Dental we love learning trivia and interesting facts about Thanksgiving! This year, Dr. Samuel Cho wanted to share some trivia that might help you feel a bit smarter at the holiday dinner table and help create some great conversation with friends and family.

The Turkey

There is no historical evidence that turkey was eaten at the first Thanksgiving dinner. It was a three-day party shared by the Wamponoag Indians and the pilgrims in 1621. Historians say they likely ate venison and seafood.

According to National Geographic, the dinner at the Plymouth colony was in October and included about 50 English colonists and 90 American Indian men. The first Thanksgiving dinner could have included corn, geese, and pumpkin.

Today, turkey is the meat of choice. According to the National Turkey Association, about 690 million pounds of turkey are consumed during Thanksgiving, or about 46 million turkeys.

The Side Dishes

The green bean casserole became popular about 50 years ago. Created by the Campbell Soup Company, it remains a popular side dish. According to Campbell’s, it was developed when the company was creating an annual holiday cookbook. The company now sells about $20 million worth of cream of mushroom soup each year, which is a major part of the recipe.

While there were likely plenty of cranberries for the pilgrims and Indians to enjoy, sugar was a luxury. What we know today as cranberry sauce was not around in those early Thanksgiving days. About 750 million pounds of cranberries are produced each year in the US, with about 30 percent consumed on Thanksgiving.

The Parade

Since Thanksgiving did not become a national holiday until Lincoln declared it in 1863, the annual parades were not yearly events until much later. The biggest parade that continues to draw crowds is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Beginning in 1924 with about 400 employees, they marched from Convent Avenue to 145th Street in New York City. Famous for the huge hot-air balloons today, it was actually live animals borrowed from the Central Park Zoo that were the stars of the show then.

However you choose to spend your Thanksgiving holiday, we wish you a safe, happy and healthy holiday with those you love.
