Pain-free Anaesthetic

Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA)

At Appolonia Dentistry for Children, we want your child’s experience of their dental treatment in our Khalifa City or o Khalidiya clinic to be as comfortable as possible, which is why we are proud to use the STA as our local anesthetic for children.

The Single Tooth Anesthesia (STA™) is the first computer-controlled local dental anesthetic system that has helped many children overcome their fear of the dentist.

How does the STA work?

The STA is ideal for treating children. It is a pain-free alternative to the traditional dental injection, and it is a computerized system that delivers precise local anesthetic without the pain and anxiety of a dental needle or discomfort associated with the effects of extensive numbing.

Traditionally, local anesthetic is administered with a needle and numbs the entire side of the face – which not only makes it difficult to speak and eat after treatment, but it can cause post-operative trauma too, as children cannot feel if they are biting their lips or cheeks. The STA is changing all that, using a computerized, sensor-controlled probe that numbs only the tooth being treated.
