Many patients are more afraid of the anaesthetic injection than the treatment itself. For this reason, we offer a computerised anaesthesia system in our practice. The computer controls, monitors and reduces the pressure at which the anaesthetic is introduced into the tissue, making the process comfortable and painless.
In addition, special injection techniques can be used with this system to anaesthetise just the teeth (Single Tooth Anaesthesia / STA) and not, as so often, the lips, tongue or face as well. This technique is gentle on tissue and requires less anaesthetic. The effect occurs quickly and also rapidly dissipates after treatment, so you are not left feeling the effects of numbness hours after the dental treatment.
