CARNLEIAN BAY, Calif. and#8212; and#8220;All of our patients are raving about it!and#8221; said Dr. David Andrews and his staff at the Carnelian Bay office. Patients who have experienced a brand new dental anesthetic technique claim it has made the and#8220;worst partand#8221; of dentistry completely vanish. Most people agree the worst part of dentistry is getting numb because it can cause a stinging sensation.

No more stinging at and#8220;Dr. Daveand#8217;sand#8221; office with the new dental anesthetic technique called Onset, a product of Onpharma, which allows dentistry to be painless. Many new dental products are introduced yearly so dentists may deliver high quality dental treatment. Dr. Dave saw the great benefits and seized the opportunity to become one the first in the country to be authorized to use this state-of-the-art product. The use of Onset improves the numbing process in every way. In combination with a topical numbing gel, dental treatment is painless.

The pH of local anesthetic solution is acidic which causes the anesthetic to sting or burn as it is being administered. By adding a small amount of Onset to the anesthetic it decreases the acidity, making it the same pH as the human body, therefore, as it is administered there is no sensation. Also, Onset allows the local anesthetic to act much faster and better with more profound anesthesia (numbness). It is a win-win experience for all.
