At Peters Dental Associates in Houston, TX, Dr. M.H. Peters, Jr. is pleased to invest into his practice for some of the most revolutionary treatment solutions for his patients. This includes finding ways to make dental visits less painful for his patients. With the integration of the Kovanaze needle-free anesthesia, patients are excited to visit their dentist for treatments that no longer involve numbing the smile with injectable anesthetics.
What is Kovanaze?
Dr. M.H. Peters, Jr. describes Kovanaze as a needle-free alternative to traditional injectable anesthetics for routine dental treatments. Instead of injecting an anesthetic into the patient’s mouth, causing pain and discomfort to administer, our dentist will instead use this specialized nasal spray for regional anesthetics. This product was introduced during the American Dental Association Meeting in 2016 and is one of the first FDA-approved dental anesthetics that eliminated the need for a needle.
Prior to patients undergoing their dental treatment, numbing the treatment area is encouraged to allow patients to feel comfortable. Patients can forego the needle and instead use Kovanaze nasal spray to provide a numbing sensation to the mouth. Then, the dentist is able to perform the procedure as normal. One of the primary benefits of this is the ability to eliminate an injection. However, this anesthetic also helps greatly with the uncomfortable sensation of tingling and numbness that patients often feel after their dental appointment for sometimes hours. Gone are the days of a tingling lip or numb cheek, as well as unwanted drooling and difficulty speaking often associated with traditional injectable anesthetics. Kovanaze can ensure patients have a positive experience in the dental chair and for the remainder of their day!
