Our team is proud to offer Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) as a revolutionary new way to provide local anesthesia to our patients. With the Wand, we can deliver precise amounts of anesthetic just to the area that needs it, without causing pain or a sharp sting.

What is Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA)?

Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) is a new and innovative way to administer local anesthesia. Instead of traditional injections that can cause pain and anxiety for patients, the Wand delivers anesthetic in a more precise and comfortable manner. This device allows us to numb only the tooth that is being treated, which prevents your entire face, lips and tongue from being numb.

Why would Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA) be needed?

The Wand is useful for any procedure that requires local anesthesia. The majority of patients who fear the dental office say that injections are why they avoid coming in for treatment in the first place. By reducing the pain and sting of traditional injections, there is less fear and anxiety when coming into the office. Likewise, you’ll benefit from a local anesthetic that works only on the tooth that’s being treated, which prevents having a numb face and tongue for hours on end.

Who is a candidate for Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA)?

Every patient coming into our office is a good candidate for single tooth anesthetic. Children are especially good candidates since they are often fearful of injections, and the Wand can help alleviate their fear. If a procedure requires local anesthetic, we can offer you the benefits of the Wand and the technology behind how the machine works. Many of our patients have switched to our office from others because of our use of the Wand.

What can you expect with Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA)?

At The Dentists of Woodbridge, we strive to make your experience as comfortable as possible. When you come in for treatment, we will sit you comfortably in one of our examination rooms. We then use the Wand, a small handheld device that looks like a pen, to numb the tooth being treated. The technology behind the machine assesses the thickness of the gums to determine the amount of anesthetic needed. The anesthetic is then administered directly into the area that is being treated. You’ll experience quicker and more effective numbing without the annoyance of having a numb face and tongue.
