Forget the Needle! We offer needle-free pain relief for many dental procedures!
Oraqix® is a needle-free anesthetic that is administered topically and below the gum line. Oraqix® is effective and efficient for many dental procedures and offers our patients a needle-free alternative to traditional anesthetics.
We may recommend this alternative anesthesia for several reasons, including:
- A needle-free option has been found to be overwhelmingly preferred over traditional anesthetics. In clinical studies, 70% of patients preferred Oraqix® to a needle injection.
- Numbing occurs quickly, usually within 30 seconds.
- The sensation of numbness usually lasts about 20 minutes. So, normal sensation is typically returned by the time your appointment is completed!
- Oraqix® is site specific which allows Dr. Naem to selectively numb specific areas of the mouth.
