Anutra Medical, a medical device company, has donated anesthetic supplies to support the South Sound Free Dental Day. This annual event is in its third year and is presented by Light Dental Studios, a multi-site dental care organization in the South Puget Sound, Washington area. Thirty-five doctors and over two hundred staff members from Light Dental will be donating their time to help provide select dental services to those in their community at no charge.
Prospective patients can visit Light Dental Studios’ Puyallup, University Place or Olympia locations between 8:00 AM PST and 1:00 PM PST on Saturday, May 5, 2018 to be assessed for care and may choose between a free filling or extraction.
The Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System, by Anutra Medical, has been the choice anesthetic delivery method for Light Dental Studios. The system leverages the science of buffering to reduce the high levels of acid found in local anesthetic. The result of buffering anesthetic provides a more comfortable experience for the patient. Many patients have been quoted saying that the injection was “painless” or that they “didn’t feel a thing” when they received an injection.
Not only is buffering beneficial to the patient’s comfort, it is also a more predictable way of administering local anesthetic for the provider. Buffered anesthetic is more reliable and has a higher likelihood of getting patients numb very quickly, each and every time. Traditional methods of anesthetic administration results in inconsistent results where some patients are unable to fully become numb or it is a time consuming process requiring multiple injections.
“Donating anesthetic to events like South Sound Free Dental Day allows all patients to receive a comfortable injection. Further, due to the speed of the anesthetic and the reliability, the doctors will be able to provide more care to more patients without running the risk of failed or slow-acting anesthetic,” says Jeff Daner, President and Head of Sales at Anutra Medical.
