Oraqix® NORTH CHARLESTON, SC
Oraqix® is a needle-free anesthetic
Forget the Needle! We offer needle-free pain relief for many dental procedures!
Oraqix® is a needle-free anesthetic that is administered topically and below the gum line. Oraqix® is effective and efficient for many dental procedures and offers our patients a needle-free alternative to traditional anesthetics. We may recommend this alternative anesthesia for several reasons, including:
How it Works
Oraqix® is first applied to the gums around the area receiving treatment. The gel is applied using a blunt-tipped applicator. After waiting 30 seconds, the pockets around the teeth are filled with Oraqix®. After waiting an additional 30 seconds, treatment can begin. Delaying treatment does not enhance the anesthetic effect. The scaling and root planing procedure, or alternative procedure, can then be completed.
