Needle-Free Dentistry in Thornton, CO
Barron Family Dental Offers Dentistry with Kovanaze Needle-Free Anesthetic
If you avoid visiting the dentist, are scared of needles or long for dental improvements but you’re just not sure about the process, consider needle-free dentistry! At Barron Family Dental we offer treatment with no needles but complete comfort in the form of a nasal spray.
You’re Not Alone
It is estimated that about 22% of people experience a phobia of needles. This condition not only causes trauma to the person but creates an environment where dental and medical care is avoided. The avoidance can result in not receiving proper treatment for conditions, vaccinations, diagnostic procedures or general medical care.
A fear of needles can cause people to avoid preventative dental checkups and cleanings in case further treatment is required. This fear influences dental health decisions, results in poor health care choices, unnecessarily increases risk, and – now – is avoidable.
Kovanaze® Needle-Free Anesthesia
Approved by the FDA, Kovanaze® Nasal Spray is available at Barron Family Dental for patients for select procedures. Similar to any type of nasal spray, Kovanaze helps to numb upper teeth and gums for a wide range of dental treatments.
Kovanaze uses tetracaine (which has been safely and effectively used by ear-nose-throat professionals for ENT procedures) and oxymetazoline (the active ingredient in Afrin® nasal spray). The combination provides anesthesia for restorative procedures on upper teeth with good results and with no serious side effects in study participants.
Administering the no-needle nasal spray is quick, easy, and provides relief for patients to undergo dental procedures. Also, the no-needle nasal spray doesn’t numb your lips or cheeks – just the area isolated for dental care!
No More Being Scared of Needles!
If you’ve been avoiding the dentist for fear of needles, Kovanaze could be the answer! At Barron Family Dental we can use this no-needle approach for many procedures including fillings, crowns, and veneers in the upper teeth.
