STA (Single Tooth Anesthesia)


Are you dental-phobic? Do you hate shots?

If So, You Will Love STA!

STA, or the Single Tooth Anesthesia System®, makes your visit anxiety-free and more comfortable for you and your family. 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!

Moreover, 40 million Americans are termed “dental phobics,” people 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 STA at your next appointment.

It is estimated that nearly 50% of the U.S. population experience some anxiety when visiting the dentist.
