No more shots for getting numb (potentially)!

New ways of Numbing | Lucio H. Kim, DDS

The FDA just approved a new nasal spray that will get the majority of the upper teeth numb WITHOUT giving shots!

What is It?

It's called "Kovanaze"  and it could be a game changer for dentists and the dreaded shots for getting numb.  Now in all humility, I haven't gotten any complaints about my shots and everyone is pleasantly surprised at how much my shots don't hurt...but this is another potential great option for us dentists.  But if you're anxious about dental work or dental offices at any level, you can call my office for a consultation and we can talk about how we can work around those anxieties so that you can get the proper care without panic attacks or heightened anxiety.  

Call Your Glendale Dentist

There are always options.  And NOT getting dental work done or waiting too long because of anxiety shouldn't be one of them.
