An innovation in the technology of local anesthetic delivery allows more comfortable injections that are beneficial to dentists and their patients. Using the Dynamic Pressure Sensing technology of the WandSTA, All Injection System, learn how to comfortably and successfully deliver profound anesthesia to a single tooth, offering an alternative to the Mandibular Block. Learn how to easily anaesthetize multiple teeth and related tissues with a single-site palatal injection that does not cause collateral numbness to the patient’s lip and face. This course will review the technology and injection dynamics associated with the STA injection system, along with a description of new techniques for traditional infiltration and block injections and for new, state-of-the-art injections such as the STA-Intraligamentary Injection, AMSA, and P-ASA. Participants will be able to have these injections demonstrated and be able to administer them under direct supervision.
