Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA)

Single tooth anesthesia for eliminating pain during dental procedures

Calling the dentist and making that appointment for extensive dental work often brings patients anxiety. Even if they have had positive experiences with their dental team, they may still fear pain and discomfort. At The Center for Holistic Dental Medicine, Dr. Glenn A. MacFarlane and his team in Red Bank, New Jersey, are pleased to offer methods of anesthesia that make it easier than ever to get work done—and ensure comfort from start to finish. Our dental team is proud to utilize a specialized device called The Wand, which provides single tooth anesthesia, or “STA,” for patients undergoing dental work.

What is The Wand?

The Wand is one way to make dental visits more comfortable. Instead of using an injectable anesthetic that numbers the entire part of the mouth and jaw, The Wand helps provide single tooth anesthesia. That ensures that just the tooth being treated is numbed and not the surrounding areas. That eliminates leaving the dental office with the feeling of a fat lip and a large mouth. It also eliminates numbing injections that can be painful and sting while being administered. That means no needles!

Why choose Single Tooth Anesthesia?

There are several reasons why patients love our STA system with The Wand device, but the primary reason is the elimination of needles during their dental visit. Patients are often more relaxed knowing that the area being treated can be effectively numbed without pain and discomfort and in a way that allows them to return to their normal activities immediately following their appointment. With this in mind, patients can return to work or school without interruptions.
