Single-Tooth Anesthesia (STA)
Although advanced dentistry greatly improves the time and comfort involved in most dental treatments, many patients still feel apprehensive about receiving anesthetic injections. In addition to a fear of needles, patients might often dislike the feeling of having their entire mouth numbed, restricting their ability to eat, drink, or speak properly for the rest of the day. With single-tooth anesthesia, your dentist can provide the same comfortable numbing effects while keeping the anesthesia localized to the tooth being worked on. The computer-aided delivery system also continuously regulates the amount of anesthesia delivered to ensure optimal comfort throughout your procedure.
The Benefits of STA
Patients who are uncomfortable with traditional, needle-delivered anesthesia experience a number of benefits with our advanced STA system. For instance, by concentrating the anesthesia only on one specific tooth, you can continue on with the rest of your day without having to endure little or no feeling in the rest of your mouth. By eliminating the need for additional injection sites, STA also eliminates the risks of damage to nearby tissues. Because the level of anesthesia is controlled by computer, the numbness won’t wear off during the procedure resulting undue discomfort.
Optimizing your comfort with STA
Your comfort is as important to us as your dental health, and we invest in technology and techniques that optimize both.
