Painless Anesthesia Delivery System (STA)

At 19th Avenue Dental, we understand that many of our patients fear needles and visiting the dentist. That is why we offer the painless anesthesia delivery system, also known as single tooth anesthesia or STA. The STA system is a painless and effortless delivery system. All the systems of the STA machine are controlled by a computer. The computer controls the amounts of anesthetics delivered to a single tooth. With STA, our patients will experience no numb cheeks, lips, or tongues while enhancing the patient’s comfort levels. If you would like to learn more about how our friendly dentist in Everett, Washington, Dr. Shuichi Yamaguchi, utilizes this system for your benefit, please contact us today at 19th Avenue Dental.

At our office, we also utilize the DentalVibe®, which takes the pain out of injections. While Dr. Shuichi Yamaguchi is administering anesthesia, the tip of the DentalVibe vibrates. The vibration sensation blocks the feeling of pain from reaching the brain. This tool can be used for any patient who needs an injection. Not only does the DentalVibe eliminate the pain of injection, it causes the local anesthesia to take effect quickly. This handheld tool can eliminate fear injection and of the dentist. We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more and to schedule an appointment.
