At English Rows Dental Group we try to make every procedure as comfortable as possible. However, a lot of the anxiety that comes from going to the dentist starts with the anesthetic and the idea of having a needle used in your mouth. We have implemented a device in our office that will allow us to anesthetize a tooth quickly and painlessly without having to use the usual approach of injecting the anesthetic into the bone under the gums. This device is called the STA Single Tooth Anesthesia System with The Wand handpiece.
A Device For Patients
It is estimated that nearly 50% of the U.S. population, alone, experience some anxiety when visiting the dentist. Moreover, 40 million Americans are termed “dental phobics,” persons with such severe anxiety that they avoid dental care altogether. In fact, nearly 25% of all dental appointments are canceled because of this phobia.
