Single Tooth Anesthesia
No one likes the feeling of a numb lip or tongue. The filling took a half an hour to place, but you are numb for three hours. You have to go to a meeting right after your appointment, and you don’t want to be drooling. We have a system in the office called STA or Single Tooth Anesthesia. This a computerized controlled pump that allows us to freeze only the single tooth we are treating. No numb lip or tongue. The local anesthetic lasts only a half an hour. You do not feel NUMB! The area feels just different.
This is great for simple single fillings, or placing of crowns.
