When you’re undergoing an oral procedure, we’ll typically provide you with local anesthesia to help ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout it. At Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, you can rest easy knowing that we employ the latest and greatest in the anesthesia industry.
We use the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System to help make your time with us easy, quick, and safe. With this reliable and advanced innovation that delivers local anesthesia, our patients have said their experience with Anutra is completely stress-free and efficient.
What is the
Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System?
The Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System precisely buffers anesthetics with a neutral agent to help lower the acidity level bringing it closer to the natural pH level of the body. This allows the local anesthetic to enter your body more quickly, reducing pain and numbing the area almost immediately.
Buffering is the chemical process that neutralizes acids and bases. Benefits you’ll experience from buffering are:
- Increases the predictability that you will get numb the first time
- The effects of the anesthetics are delivered faster than ever
- Reduces pain and makes you feel comfortable right away
Frequently Asked Questions
Local anesthetics are safe for most patients but can occasionally cause side effects. Fortunately, the side effects are usually mild and wear off quickly. They can include:
- Tingling and minor pain in the injection site
- Muscle twitching
Allergic reactions are rare but can occur and are typically accompanied by difficulty breathing, swelling, hives, or the throat closing. Tell Dr. MacDonald about any health conditions you have or medications you take to avoid interactions with the local anesthetic.
According to the American Dental Association, local anesthetics are usually covered in most dental insurance plans. As a result, it shouldn’t be an additional charge. Ask for a pre-treatment estimate at your consultation with Dr. MacDonald and he’ll be happy to break down the cost of your dental treatment.
