Single-Tooth Anesthesia

Raise your hand if you love novocaine!
Just a guess: no one raised their hand.
That’s because no one loves needles and no one loves the big fat lip you leave the office with. Our patients deserve a more comfortable option.

Being afraid of pain is just not the way it should be. That’s why we give you the option of Single-Tooth Anesthesia, or STA for short.

The STA System is a computer-controlled, local, dental anesthetic system that allows us to numb the single tooth that is being treated. The STA wand delivers a steady drip of anesthetic in between the tooth and the gum. Most people who have received STA hardly feel a thing!

What can you expect?

Wondering what happens while receiving STA?
Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Truong will start with an extra-strength, numbing topical gel.
  • She will gently place the STA wand in between the gum and the tooth that will be receiving treatment.
  • You may feel the wand slide next to the tooth.
  • Truong will deliver the medication (anesthetic).
  • She will check to make sure that you are completely numb.
  • Once you are comfortably numb, she will begin the procedure.

See if you're a candidate!
