The simple act of scheduling a dental appointment is a daunting task for those who have dental anxiety. In fact, you may avoid going to the dentist altogether if you suffer from an intense fear or anxiety surrounding dental care.

While dental anxiety can be rooted in a bad experience as a child or an aversion to the smells or sounds of the dental office, it is more commonly due to fear of oral injections or needles. This refers to the anesthetic injection that most dentists give to numb an area of your mouth before a procedure.

If you are one that fears the anesthetic shot at the dentist more than the procedure itself, you will be happy to know there’s a solution. Modern dentists like those at Crabapple Dental are taking advantage of a revolutionary needle-free injection method using Kovanaze Nasal Spray. With just a few easy sprays in your nostrils, we can numb the maxillary arch of your teeth without putting you through the discomfort and anxiety of a dental injection.

How Does Nose Spray Take the Place of Needles?

Kovanaze Nasal Spray, composed of tetracaine HCl and oxymetazoline HCl, represents the first FDA-approved, needle-free regional dental anesthesia. It is specifically designed to numb the teeth in of the upper arch ranging from #4 to #13 in adults. The nose spray can also be used in children who weigh more than 88 lbs. The anesthesia delivery of Kovanaze nose spray takes effect in just ten minutes and is highly effective for numbing the teeth before root canals, fillings, extractions and other dental procedures that cannot be avoided.

Find Out if Needle-Free Dentistry is Right For You

Do you have an upcoming dental procedure or treatment plan that requires a local dental anesthetic? If you’d like to avoid the anxiety and discomfort of a dental needle, ask our dentists if you qualify for Kovanaze Nasal Spray. At Crabapple Dental, we want to make your dental care experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Contact us today!

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
