The fear of injections is widespread. Many patients are more afraid of anaesthesia than of dental treatment. STA ® - Single tooth anesthesia in combination with The Wand handpiece eliminates the need for classic anesthesia syringes.
Many patients think it is the needle puncture that causes pain during an injection. In reality, however, it is the pressure with which the local anaesthetic is applied into the tissue during a conventional anaesthetic injection. This causes microcracks in the tissue, which trigger the pain. The computer of the STA® unit, on the other hand, uses a sensor at the tip of the needle to determine the tissue resistance and then calculates the optimum pumping capacity for the anaesthetic.
With the STA ® anaesthesia system, the anaesthetic fluid drips so slowly into the tissue that it is not traumatised and no pain at all can be triggered. The anaesthetic thus reaches the desired tissue site in a precise and minimal dosage and the anaesthetic is applied immediately.
With STA® we can perform an anaesthesia much more filigree and precise, whereby not half your face, but only the area that really needs to be anaesthetized is anaesthetized. It is even possible to anaesthetize a single tooth in isolation. This means that less anaesthetic is used, which is good for your body. After a local anaesthetic with STA ® you will have less annoying numb lips, tongue or cheek and no unpleasant feeling.
This computer-controlled anaesthesia method from the USA is used by only very few dentists. An experienced dentist, who uses the STA® routinely and skilfully, will even be able to put on an anaesthetic imperceptibly. What can be more convincing than an almost painless anaesthetic injection.
