Comfortable Dental Care
In our office, we use an anesthesia system called Enutra. We started using this system when it first came out, and we started partnering using Enutra because it helps the patient get more comfortably numb, and they get numb faster and more deeply numb, more profoundly numb.
We were able to take that technology and merge it with doing the same-day procedures for patients because the anesthesia was more predictable. We could suddenly numb patients, and they were ready to be treated within three to five minutes rather than waiting five, 10, 15, 20 minutes, because traditional anesthesia can be very unpredictable. But using this buffered anesthetic with Enutra has really helped us take this service to a whole new level for our patients.
We started offering the same-day service intermittently, seeing how it went with our patients, and then we decided patients love this. What a wonderful thing. So we went from doing very few of ours, and maybe one or two of ours a week, to doing most all of our crowns for our patients in the same day. And we’re talking about single-unit crowns, one crown for a patient, maybe two at the same time, and that’s just a great service to do for patients, and we love the anesthesia. It’s worked very well in our practice.
