Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA)
Comfortable & Convenient
When appropriate, we utilize an anesthesia system that is very different than the traditional dental syringe. The STA is a computer-controlled injection system that incorporates pressure sensing technology to deliver a safe and comfortable dose of anesthetic around the tooth. This device is sometimes referred to as “the wand”. Many times the patient feels nothing when the STA is used.
The advantage of this technology is multifold. One, is comfortable for the patient. Two, we may begin treatment immediately with no waiting period for anesthesia. Finally, the patient’s tongue and/or lip do not lose sensation. This means the patient may go about eating and talking normally as soon as they leave the office.
This has been very popular with our patients!
