Sta Single Tooth Anesthesia
Are you dental phobic? Do you hate shots?
If so, you will love the STA!
STA, or Single Tooth Anesthesia System® makes your visit anxiety-free and more comfortable for you and your family. The STA painlessly delivers anesthetic to a single tooth without the need for a traditional injection and eliminates the after effects of a numb tongue or cheek.
Anesthetic is delivered through a small probe placed between the tooth and gum. Computer controlled, the anesthetic is flowed around the root of the tooth at a level just below the pain threshold so the anesthetic is virtually painless!
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. Don’t let your phobia come between you and the dental care you need to maintain good health. Ask for the STA at your next appointment.
