What is the Single Tooth Anesthesia System?

Known as the STA, the Single Tooth Anesthesia System has revolutionized the way patients feel about undergoing treatment at the dentist. The STA eliminates the fear and anxiousness associated with conventional syringes, and has the capability of numbing a single tooth without any collateral numbness in the cheek, lips or tongue so patients feel more comfortable after the procedure.

The STA features a wide range of benefits to patients, including:

  • The STA is the first anesthetic system capable of numbing a single tooth
  • The only machine of its kind, the STA utilizes patented CompuFlo technology, a computer-controlled drug administration system that incorporates Dynamic Pressure Sensing for safe, painless anesthesia delivery
  • While conventional syringes can deliver anesthesia unpredictably, the STA provides real-time visual and audible feedback to ensure accuracy
  • The STA creates more efficient flow of anesthetic solution for quicker onset and longer duration of numbness
  • The precision and accuracy of the STA eliminates residual numbness in the mouth so patients can speak normally without having to worry about biting down on the tongue or lips after treatment.

Is the STA Safe?

The Single Tooth Anesthesia system has a proven safety profile and has been used throughout the country without any major complications. The injection will be tailored to your individual treatment, ensuring that the anesthesia is delivered to the right area and in the exact dosage necessary for your treatment.
