Better Dental Anesthesia
We use ‘buffered’ (pH balanced anesthesia) Buffering of local anesthetics has been demonstrated to counteract these undesirable qualities of local anesthetics—eliminate the sting, faster onset and more profound numbing. Recent advances in technology have made buffering of local anesthetics practical for use chairside immediately prior to use, making the anesthetic’s onset quicker, more reliable, and more comfortable for the patient. Dental Anesthetic is sold with an acidic pH to prolong the shelf life. By bringing the pH to a more neutral position all the positive advantages are accomplished, less ‘sting’ faster onset, and deeper effect. This technique is used particularly for lower numbing.
We use epinephrine free anesthesia upon your request.
With Teeth resistant to traditional numbing techniques we use a gentle administration of ‘intraseptal’ anesthesia, which numbs the root and bone all around the tooth, and makes the numbing much more profound.
“The numbing effect of intraseptal anesthesia on the tooth is immediate and consistent with previous clinical results. Their findings reported that the onset of action for anesthesia was within 1 min after injection. Hence, the onset time can be considered rapid if not immediate”

People compliment us everyday about ‘painless techniques” for numbing.
