STA-Painless Injections

When it comes to going to the dentist, Dr. Erik Mendelsohn and the entire staff of Serenity Smile Designs have got you in mind. At our dental office located in Egg Harbor Township, we are especially passionate about revolutionizing the doctor and patient injection experience.

Fear of the dentist is a commonly identified reason for non-attendance. In fact, nearly 25% of all dental appointments are canceled because of this phobia.  For adults who are dentally anxious; it is the pain associated with the drill and the local anesthetic injection—which is the most feared aspect of dental treatment.

For those times when you might not look forward to that appointment, the STA Single Tooth Anesthesia System® unit and The Wand®handpiece make the visit anxiety-free and more comfortable for you and your family.

Can local anesthetic injections be non-threatening and painless? The answer is yes! One exciting advance has been the development of computer controlled local andesitic delivery systems such as theSTA Single Tooth Anesthesia System® unit and The Wand®handpiece.

These systems offer the following benefits:

  • ·         Innovative injection techniques
  • ·         Reduced injection discomfort
  • ·         Injections do not produce collateral numbness to the lips, face, and tongue
  • ·         Uses less anaesthetic to achieve the same result
  • ·         Faster onset of anesthesia
  • ·         Non-threatening appearance
  • ·         Especially useful for children and dental phobics

Injection discomfort often occurs when too much anesthetic is delivered too fast in a confined area of tissue. Because these flow-rate control devices inject the solution slowly, these systems enhance the precision of Dr. Erik Mendelsohn’s injections and ultimately improve patient comfort.

Patients are more receptive and satisfied with the comfort level of injections performed by electronic systems—such as the STA—as compared to those delivered with the standard dental syringe.

Do you consider yourself a “dental phobic”?  If so, you are not alone. It is estimated that nearly 50% of the U.S. population, alone, experience some anxiety when visiting the dentist. Devices such as the STA Single Tooth Anesthesia System® unit and The Wand®handpiece may be just the perfect thing for you! With the STA device, the patient will not feel the injection. Dr. Erik Mendelsohn is able to achieve numbness of a single tooth area without tongue and lip tissue anesthesia. Its less threatening appearance is even known to reduce patient anxiety and stress.

Here at Serenity Smile Designs, we believe that our patients deserve the very best and we are constantly striving to provide you with any effort to achieve patient comfort during your dental visits.
