Have you ever wondered how to have a more comfortable and shorter dental appointment? The dentists from Gendler Dental Center in Hopkins, Minnesota offer their patients a way to have just that. The dentists from Gendler Dental Center commits to providing the best patient experience.
As a way to do that, Dr. Joseph Gendler has made the investment in the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System which leverages science to increase patient comfort while shortening appointment times.
What is dental pain buffering
The science of buffering is an age-old science practiced regularly in the field of medicine. Buffering is a chemical process that neutralizes acids and bases. One of the primary complaints patients express about going to the dentist is the pain of an injection. What most people do not understand is the likely root cause of that burning and stinging sensation is from the anesthetic being used. Local anesthetics are traditionally very acidic. In fact, many anesthetics share a similar pH level as citric acid, which is found in lemon juice. It is the high level of acidity that contributes to the majority of pain felt by patients after a dental injection.
Dr. Joseph Gendler explains, “With the Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System, local anesthetic is buffered meaning the high levels of acidity are reduced and mirror the body’s pH. This allows patients to become numb more quickly, it reduces the patient’s pain and it increases the likelihood that patients will only need one injection to become anesthetized.
This technology can help to reduce appointment time. The reason for a potentially shorter appointment time is that the rapid onset of the anesthetic means the dentist won’t have to leave your side after injection and can begin the dental work immediately.
