Computerized Anesthesia Delivery
One of the most anxiety-stirring aspects of dentistry for patients is the shot. One of the most innovative advances in dental technology today is the STA System of computerized anesthesia delivery. One little known fact is that what patients often perceive as pain is in fact the pressure associated with dispensing a large bolus of anesthetic into the gum tissue. By using the computerized STA System, anesthetic is delivered at precisely controlled rates such that patient discomfort can be virtually eliminated. In addition, the stigmatized vision of the needle and syringe are done away with. The harmless look of the STA System is especially effective at alleviating injection-related fears in children and adolescents.
