How Buffered Anesthetic is Revolutionizing Dentistry
Tuesday, October 13, 2015
Recent innovations—such as a disposable, multi-dose aspiration syringe and an intricately engineered mixing dispenser—make buffering more accessible
Dentists value the efficiency and predictability of buffering in their practice
Buffered anesthetics are fast and reliable, improving the patient experience
The science of buffering anesthetics has been used for decades in the medical community, but its application in dentistry has occurred more recently. Buffering is simply a chemical process that neutralizes acids and bases. Buffered anesthetics get the patients numb extremely fast, are more reliable, and reduce the patient’s pain.
Practitioners love buffering because it creates efficient and predictable appointments, and patients love buffering because they are becoming numb before the injection and most don’t even feel the needle go in. With recent innovations, buffering is more accessible than ever before.
