Oraqix is the only FDA-approved needle free anesthetic available for scaling and root planning.
This allows for increased patient comfort during anesthesia administration as well as less inflammation of the tissues which follow traditional needle injections.
How does it work?
The tip of the applicator applies a liquid that set into a gel state. This allows the application to stay in place and to be absorbed longer. The anesthesia begins taking effect just 30 seconds following application.
The average application lasts approximately 20 min.
The whole team at Cowichan Valley Dental is amazing, and I have never trusted a dental office more. They are professional while still being fun, and my teeth have never looked better 🙂
