For the nervous patient, Dr. MacFarlane is pleased to use the STA (Single Tooth Anesthesia) system to more comfortably administer anesthesia. The STA system is a computer-controlled dental injection system that helps to make your visit more comfortable and your experience at our office more relaxing.
The STA system uses something that looks like a ball point pen. The miniscule needle is located at the end of this pen-like device. When using the STA system, a computer controls the flow of anesthesia, resulting in reduced human error and more comfort for you.
The STA system has many advantages, including:
- Non-threatening appearance
- Precise anesthesia flow rate
- More effective
- More comfortable for you
