Painless, precise local anesthesia with the QuickSleeper 5 device at Burlington, ON dentist
At some point in your life, you will likely need local anesthesia for a dental procedure such as a filling or tooth repair. While anesthesia is critical for making you comfortable during your time in the dental chair, the traditional method of delivering the anesthetic is not very comfortable and can leave the whole side of your mouth numb for hours after your treatment. That’s where the QuickSleeper 5 electronic anesthesia device comes in! Dr. Sam Gupta, a dentist in Burlington, ON, uses this revolutionary device to painlessly and precisely numb patients’ mouths with almost instantaneous results.
How QuickSleeper 5 works
The QuickSleeper 5 delivers local anesthesia quickly and effectively, including osteocentral anesthesia, a type of anesthesia delivery in which anesthetic is injected into the spongy portion of the bone close to the bottom of a tooth for the maximum numbing effect. The QuickSleeper 5 works in three phases and can be adjusted electronically to meet each patient’s specific needs:
- Phase 1 – the dentist uses computerized delivery technology and a specialized needle on the QuickSleeper 5 device to gently numb your oral mucosa
- Phase 2 – the device drills painlessly into the bone to deliver anesthetic in a controlled fashion
- Phase 3 – the numbing agent is slowly injected into the spongy portion of the bone and its adjacent tissues
After the anesthetic has been delivered, we can start your dental procedure immediately—no need to wait for up to half an hour for the anesthetic to take full effect!
Benefits of QuickSleeper 5
Part of the distress of receiving local anesthesia at the dentist is seeing the needle with which it is delivered and the time it takes for it to start working. The QuickSleeper 5 does not look like a typical syringe—it looks much like an ordinary pen—and takes effect almost immediately, so you don’t have to sit and wait anxiously for your procedure to begin. It is highly efficient, and one injection can treat several teeth at one time.
Even better, the precise delivery mechanism allows us to numb only the essential portions of your mouth, so you aren’t left with a mouth that is numb for hours after your treatment that renders you unable to eat, speak, or return to your daily activities.
