Kaneohe, Hawaii (PressExposure) April 08, 2011 -- When it comes to dental injections, both Dr. Bruce Keller and Dr. Cynthia Ichiriu Keller have long been known as, "painless as it gets." However, to make their injections virtually pain free, the doctors have now added the use of STA, a sophisticated computer anesthetic delivery system. For patients who dread "the shot", this new method eliminates the fear of needles and the pain of injections.
According to Dr. Bruce Keller, "We have completely changed the game for so many of our patients. Finally, we have removed fear of the needle as an obstacle to dental treatment. White knuckles are a thing of the past. Patients don't even notice that we have made them numb!" Dr Cynthia Ichiriu Keller says, "Our patients especially appreciate that they don't leave our office with that annoying and debilitating numb lip and face that sometimes lasts for hours. STA allows us to precisely confine the numbness to just a single tooth so patients can go to work or school, no problem. A patient of mine is a politician. He had an important speech scheduled immediately after his appointment. I'm not sure how the speech went, but at least he was able to speak clearly!"
Milestone Scientific provides the STA Single Tooth Anesthesia System® that combines patented, state-of-the-art computer-controlled injection technology with the dentist's training to achieve more precise injections, improved drug delivery, and enhanced patient comfort levels. According to Milestone Scientific, it is estimated that nearly 50% of the U.S. population, alone, experience some anxiety when visiting the dentist. Moreover, 40 million Americans are termed "dental phobics," persons with such severe anxiety that they avoid dental care altogether. In fact, nearly 25% of all dental appointments are cancelled because of this phobia.
