No Needle Dentistry

No Needle Dentistry at your Winter Park Dental Clinic

This might be the biggest news dentistry has ever seen.

In the near future, you might be able to get dental work done without having to get a shot due to Kovanaze, a new type of dental anesthetic has come to the market.


Kovanaze was recently approved by the FDA to be used by dentists.  For over 100 years, the only method dentists had to get your teeth numb was using a needle to inject anesthetic into your gums.  While this can be done painlessly in most instances by a dentist with the proper training and knowledge, many people still have a large fear of needles.

This new type of dental anesthetic is different, and it does not require a needle because it is delivered via nasal spray. Unlike traditional dental anesthetics, it is reported to get the teeth numb, without getting the lips and gums numb. Do you know what that means? No more fat lip feeling!

While this product seems extremely promising, it does have a few drawbacks. Currently, it only works on teeth that are in the front of your mouth and on the top jaw. This means the teeth on the top that show when you smile. Also, it is currently very expensive, so don’t expect to see it at every dental office just yet.

This is great news for people who are afraid of needles. Hopefully one day soon we can say bye, bye Novocaine!
